South Dakota votes to preserve women's rights

They voted no on the abortion ban!
Deanna:

By a 55-45 margin, South Dakotans struck down the abortion ban that left no exceptions for rape, incest or a woman's health. I'll refer to Jessica at Feministing to echo my more visceral emotions at the moment. Hurray!!

Ann:

I give the anti-choicers only a few days before they start pushing for a ban with rape and incest exceptions... which is, unfortunately, much more likely to be approved.

But for now, let's celebrate the fact that a direct challenge to Roe has been averted. This is good news.
