South Dakota re-enters the 21st Century: "No" to Abortion Ban

Looks like the infamous abortion ban in South Dakota ain't gonna fly with the state's residents.

Opponents of South Dakota's abortion ban are maintaining their lead over those who favor the law.

With 194 of 818 precincts reporting results, 60 percent of voters cast "no" votes, according to results from the Secretary of State's Office.

The ban - which outlaws all abortions except those performed to save the life of a pregnant woman - is a direct challenge to the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

Welcome back to the reality-based community, SD, and here's to hoping you defeat what certain other Sciencebloggers have described in IM as a "fucking draconian piece of shit".
