South Dakota's war on women making national headlines

Ugh. It's hard to know how much worse it can get for women, especially of low income, in a failed red state. Kate Sheppard writes:
On Thursday, South Dakota lawmakers approved a bill that will make its waiting period for abortions—already the most restrictive in the country—even more cumbersome. "It could mean that abortion is virtually inaccessible for many women, if not all women," Alisha Sedor, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice South Dakota, told Mother Jones. "It doesn't matter if abortion is legal in South Dakota if de facto women can't access services."
