Our biggest fear: South Dakota's abortion ban passed!
A little over a week ago, I posted on a South Dakota law that was on its way to being passed, banning pretty much all abortions in the state. Today, I read an article stating that the law was, indeed, passed.
The articles also states that the law is in fact an attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade. Even worse, the law makes no exceptions for victims of rape or incest. In other words, women will be required to give birth to the offspring of their rapists and abusers. Good God, they might as well sign a law making women the property of men!
I am going to find out if I can do anything to help Planned Parenthood in fighting this law. I don't have money to donate, but perhaps my writing can be of use to them. All I know is that I have to do something.
Planned Parenthood has a page on their site that helps you write and send a letter to the governor of South Dakota - as well as your own state's governor - protesting the abortion ban.
You can also add your picture to Planned Parenthood's photo petition against the abortion ban.
Planned Parenthood is also accepting monetary donations in the fight against South Dakota's abortion ban.
While I wholeheartedly understand that not everyone has the money to donate (I know I don't), you can get involved at no cost to yourself by sending a letter of protest. I implore ALL PRO-CHOICE WOMEN (AND MEN) to FIGHT BACK!
