South Dakota strikes down part of abortion informed consent law, but leaves in the dead babies part
Feministing highlighted a federal court decision which struck down parts of the South Dakota abortion informed consent law:
In another win for reproductive justice this week, a federal judge called a South Dakota anti-choice law – which mandates that doctors tell women seeking abortions that the procedure increases the risk of suicide and suicidal thoughts – “untruthful and misleading.”
Guess what they didn’t strike down?
But the judge upheld a portion of the informed consent law, which says abortions “terminate the life of a whole separate unique living human being.”
