    South Dakota Governor Signs Law Forcing Women into Crisis Pregnancy Centers – Planned Parenthood to File Lawsuit - Planned Parenthood - Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota

    March 22, 2011

    The Governor of South Dakota signed a bill into law today that requires a woman who is seeking an abortion to first prove that she has received “counseling” from one of the state’s unlicensed, unaccredited and unregulated “crisis pregnancy centers.”

    Planned Parenthood will file a lawsuit to stop the law. “Planned Parenthood’s legal team has determined that this bill is such an egregious violation of the Constitution, that we will file suit if the governor signs it,” said Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota President and CEO.

    The law, the first of its kind in the nation, imposes a 72-hour waiting period for an abortion after a woman’s initial consultation with her doctor and requires a physician to obtain written proof from a patient that she sought counseling at a “crisis pregnancy center.” The waiting period would be the longest in the nation.

    Studies have shown repeatedly that “crisis pregnancy centers” fail to give scientifically accurate medical information to women. In one congressional report, 87 percent of crisis pregnancy centers contacted by investigators gave false or misleading information about abortion.

    Scientifically accurate medical information?

    The literature that Planned Parenthood shoves under your nose?

    We don't wanna give them health care.
    We don't wanna feed them.
    We don't wanna cloth them.
    We don't wanna house them.
    We don't wanna educate them.
    We don't wanna employ them.

    wait wait you mean the same group of guys that bitch moan and complain when its said that maybe people who are overweight should maybe eat a carrot once in a while are insisting that someone HAS TO BE told that they should reconsider their abortion?

    wait you mean the same guys who insist that a waiting period to get a rifle is an incredible infringement on their rights are insisting that a waiting period about getting an abortion is proper???/

    Wait, you meant that the same group of guys that bitch moan and complain when it's said that maybe government should let us live our own lives are insisting government HAS TO TELL US what to do with our bodies before we decide what to do with our own bodies????

    You have a good point there. Our wallets are our own, our bodies belong to Nancy Pelosi. You are very convincing, thank you

    FYI they provide counseling at Planned Parenthood, and do anytime you are going to get an abortion.
