Another Feministe Post

After a chaotic couple of days I'm back into the writing thing... and finally got another post up on Feministe:
Nowhere is it more difficult to obtain an abortion than it is in South
Dakota. Women who are faced with abortion are also faced with a slew of
regulations and restrictions. We are a state of parental notification, 24
hour waiting periods, women must be asked if they wish to see their sonogram,
and they go through mandatory education about their options. A recent 8th
Circuit Court ruling just changed that education to include a message from the
doctor where he or she must tell the patient that she is “terminating the life
of a whole, separate unique, living separate human being.”
