South Dakota law will require abortion waiting period
Catholic World News - March 23, 2011
A new law in South Dakota, which would take effect on July 1, mandates a 72-hour waiting period for a woman seeking an abortion.
The bill, which was signed by Governor Dennis Daugaard on March 23, also requires women to obtain information about alternatives before obtaining an abortion. The legislation will inevitably face a court test.
