The Extreme Abortion Constitutional Amendment

The proposed South Dakota Abortion Constitutional Amendment would be one of the most extreme abortion laws in the nation. The Abortion Amendment would legalize painful, late-term abortion, all the way to the point of birth.

The Abortion Amendment is so extreme that it would also override our state’s existing common-sense, bi-partisan abortion policies. Just some of the existing common-sense laws that would be overridden by the Constitutional Amendment include:

• Parents’ rights to know when their minor daughter is pregnant and being pressured into an abortion: overridden.

• Protections for a mother from being forced to have an abortion against her will: overridden.

• Conscience protections so that doctors and nurses cannot be forced to participate in performing abortions against their will:  overridden.

• Even basic health and safety requirements for abortionists to follow, including requirements that abortions be done by a physician and an inspected and clean facility:  overridden.

The list of horrible consequences goes on. The bottom line is that this Constitutional Amendment is truly extreme and a grave threat to the life of unborn children and mothers in our state.
