It's official. If I were in South Dakota, I'd be packing my bags.
"The bill passed by a vote of 23 to 12 after opponents tried unsuccessfully to attach amendments that would have created exceptions for cases of rape and incest and that would have blocked spending of state money to defend against the court challenge that is sure to come."
As Bitch PhD points out, it seems incredibly problematic to have the taxpayers paying for the legal fees in this concocted bill/ anticipated court case. South Dakota, wouldn't you rather that the money were being put toward preventing unwanted pregnancies in the first place? Or helping support low-income women who would continue their pregnancies, if they had the money to support another child?
