South Dakota Anti-Abortion Forces Working to Overturn Roe vs. Wade
Interview with Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
On Feb. 24, the South Dakota legislature passed a bill that bans abortion in all cases except to save the life of the mother. Republican Gov. Mike Rounds has said he'll probably sign it. The law is a direct challenge not just to the Roe v. Wade, U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in 1973, but to legal abortion itself. And that's the point. Lawmakers are counting on the measure, if the governor signs it, ending up at the Supreme Court. There, they are hopeful of overturning Roe, since anti-abortion justice Samuel Alito replaced Sandra Day O'Connor, whose swing vote usually sided with abortion protections.
The right to abortion has been narrowed significantly over the 33 years since Roe v. Wade was decided. Restrictions have been imposed including: parental and spousal notification and prohibition of "late" term abortions. The so-called "partial birth abortion" procedure is currently being reviewed by the Supreme Court, despite rulings from three separate appeals courts that banning the procedure is unconstitutional.
Between The Lines' Melinda Tuhus spoke with Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, about this latest attack on abortion rights, what her organization is doing about it, and why the issue goes beyond abortion to all women's reproductive rights.
