South Dakota Pregnancy Centers Don't Want To Be Forced To Counsel Women Who Want Abortions
Gov. Dennis Daugaard has one week left in which to either sign or veto H.B. 1217, a bill that will institute a mandatory 72 hour waiting period for an abortion while a woman undergoes faith-based counseling from the state's pregnancy centers. Opponents of the bill primarily see this unconstitutional bill as a severe restriction on a woman's right to choose. But it seems there is another group concerned about losing their freedom of choice, too -- the pregnancy centers who would have to provide the counseling.
(interesting divergence - the 'pregnancy centers' have even decided to say that women should 'lie' about receiving counseling...)
