Undated (KELO-AM) Looks like the federal judge overthrowing North Dakota's six week abortion ban will help energize NARAL Pro-Choice South Dakota.
The group's, Executive Director Abbie Peterson says they're getting tired of being on the defensive so they will go on the offense this year in South Dakota. Peterson declined to be specific. She also declined to talk about any possible future litigation because Planned Parenthood is still in litigation over the South Dakota law requiring women to go to crisis pregnancy centers before obtaining an abortion.
The North Dakota ban the Judge ruled unconstitutional on Wednesday outlawed abortions as soon as the heartbeat could be heard. It had been signed into law only last year.
