Abortions and South Dakota

Did you know that not a single doctor in South Dakota will perform abortions for fear of a bad reputation?

The doctors who perform abortions in South Dakota get flown in from none other than The Land of 10,000 Lakes.

The day changes depending on the schedules of four doctors from Minnesota who fly here on a rotating basis to perform abortions, something no doctor in South Dakota will do. (Source: Washington Post, Dec. 27, 2005)

NARAL uses this factoid as a chance to rip apart Alito.

"Samuel Alito wrote the blueprint 20 years ago on how to dismantle and eventually overturn Roe," said Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, referring to a memo Alito wrote in 1985 in which he mentioned passing restrictions on abortion as a way to mitigate the effects of Roe v. Wade . "If he is confirmed, Alito could cast the decisive vote that allows additional attacks on women's reproductive freedom from the states to stand." (Source: Washington Post, Dec. 27, 2005)
