Update on the South Dakota Abortion Ban

November 7, 2006: South Dakota Residents did not approve the law by a roughly 45-55%. It is a sad day. But the pro-life movement will move on!!

Since Governor Rounds signed the landmark abortion ban into law March 6, 2006, a fund has already been created to defend it in court. As of Monday, March 20, 2006, $7,157 dollars had been collected. In addition, an unnamed donor has pledged to contribute $1 million dollars to defend it in court.

This is fabulous news. LifeNews also reports that there appears to be no severe blow to South Dakota's tourism industry because of the law either. Tourism is the second largest industry in South Dakota with 2005 bringing in $809 million. Pro-abortion activists have promised to boycott travel to South Dakota if Governor Rounds signed the bill. However, there appears to be no effect. On the contrary, many people are now going to South Dakota because they support this ban on the cruelty of abortion.
