Coincidental Decision?

October 31, 2006 09:00 AM

I find it ironic that exactly one week before the South Dakota vote which will determine whether or not the state maintains its ban on surgical and medical abortions, the U.S. Circuit Court of appeals has struck down the state's existing notifical and consent statutory requirements.

In a 2-1 ruling, the panel of judges struck down a provision that would require doctors to tell women that abortions end human lives and may later cause serious psychological problems for women who have abortions.

Please note, dear friends, that Planned Parenthood was the organization that challenged these provisions in the South Dakota law in the first place.

It is no coincidence that the court played lap dog to Planned Parenthood in these final days before the vote. What a tragedy!
