I'm hoping this will go somewhere.

South Dakota state Senate passes bill to ban nearly all abortions

"PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Legislation meant to prompt a national legal battle targeting the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, was approved Wednesday by the South Dakota Senate, moving the bill a step closer to final passage."

Comment: If this truly re-opens the debate on abortion in the United States, I think that is a good thing. I think one of the problems has been precisely that there has been no real, open debate on this subject - just two groups spinning their wheels in opposite directions, with one group ("pro-choicers") having the issue ceded to them back in the early 70's.
