South Dakota: Abortion Rights Battle Ground

Without a doubt, the most closely watched ballot measure on Election Day will be the referendum over South Dakota's abortion law, which bans all abortions except those needed to save the mother's life -- a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade at a time when the Supreme Court has two new conservative justices. And the South Dakota group that's trying to get the law repealed, Campaign for Healthy Families, has launched its first TV ad. "South Dakotans agree: Honor and protect human life. Reduce the number of abortions," the ad goes. "But should a woman who's the victim of rape or incest be left with no option? What about the mother whose health would be seriously threatened? ... It just goes too far."
