Abortion rights groups are preparing the lawsuits as South Dakota becomes the state with the longest waiting period in the nation — three days! Women will also be forced to endure fake counseling from crackpot anti choice activists at so-called 'pregnancy help centers.'
The law will certainly make it harder for some women to get abortions, said Kathi Di Nicola, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota, which runs the clinic in Sioux Falls. Women could have to drive there several times to schedule an abortion, visit a crisis pregnancy center and then get an abortion, she said.
"It would most certainly be a barrier to women who have to travel. South Dakota is a rural state," Di Nicola said. "Many women who are seeking abortion care already have to take time off work, arrange for child care."
