Unless someone pulls a hoghouse on us, we might have made it: for the first time in years (Carmen, can you document this one?), the South Dakota Legislature will not take up a bill dealing with abortion. Thank you, dear friends in Pierre!
There is one piece of pro-life legislation, and I'm actually glad to see it. Senator Adelstein and Representative Moser are sponsoring Senate Bill 193, a bill to extend Medicaid eligbility to pregnant women. What could be more pro-life than a statewide free delivery policy?
The bill appropriates $1,350,000 in state funds and $2,517,086 in federal Medicaid dollars for the program. That's less than was spent campaigning for and against the 2006 abortion ban. Four million dollars, and we provide health care for every woman in the state to help her have a healthy baby.
Now that's the kind of policy that would truly make South Dakota the pro-life state.
