Not Visiting South Dakota Any Time Soon

I was disheartened to read a story about S.D. passing a law making abortion illegal, even when the mother was raped or if the fetus is endangering her life.

This seems reactionary to the point of irrationality. There were, of course, the required quotes from Operation Rescue. It made me think, how come there isn't an 'Operation Choice.'

Instead of Operation Rescue people blocking access to clinics and acting in an intimidating way towards women choosing to exercise control over their reproductive functions, Operation Choice people would provide emotional support and a calm environment within which a woman could make a considered and informed decision about a very important thing going on in her body.
