South Dakota Abortion Advocates Halfway to Banning the Ban on 11/06 Ballot

Planned Parenthood, which runs the only abortion business in the state, decided to try to defeat the SD abortion ban at the polls first before taking it to court.

Pro-abortion activists have been fanning out across the state to obtain the 17,000 petition signatures they need to put the ban before voters and they have more than 10,000 signatures so far.

They must turn in enough signatures to the Secretary of State’s office by June 19 to qualify their initiative to repeal the abortion ban.

The law is slated to go into effect on July 1 and if Planned Parenthood and its supporters fail to get enough signatures, they will likely file a lawsuit seeking an injunction to stop the law while a case proceeds.
