Is the state going to give them guidelines on what to tell women or are they just going to preach to them for hours?
    I am concerned about that too... Who is to say these lifers don't treat these women and girls like a dog whom took a sh*t on the floor and rub their noses in it. It seems like an arrangement ripe for shaming and judging... not emotional support or educating.

    Good for South Dakota. It's their state and their decision. If any of you don't like it, then don't move there. I'm sure they will be fine with your decision.

    I don't see a big issue with the three day waiting period, although if it comes with counseling, then I definitely see room for abuse of the law as a way to try to talk women out of having an abortion through moral blackmail.

    So then you admit, the choicer's choice is abortion since that's the one they show the most support for as a movement.

    Can't you think of ways to do that that are not sexist, insulting to females, and demeaning to rape survivors???

    It's not my choice or your choice... it's their choice... The real difference is that you think it should be your choice.

    Once you start dictating what choice other people should make, then you are, in part, responsible for that choice.

    Most pro-choice people don't "support abortion". They support respecting a woman's ability to make her own decision. If they supported abortion, the so many of them wouldn't have a children.

    Ditto, this should be federal law. It does no harm at all to give a woman pause to really think about whether or not she wants to abort a life. Its the same with gun purchase waiting period.

I do not, however, support the women having to get counseling at a crisis pregnancy center. The people that work there have an agenda, and are not medical professionals. Women should have all the facts before they get an abortion, but thats not what crisis pregnancy centers are providing.
    Now this I do agree with. I'm not a fan of the whole sending them to counseling thing and acknowledge you'd likely have people there with an agenda though I am afraid almost anyone you have them talk to is likely going to have a bit of an agenda. I'm less bothered by the waiting period though I still think over all it will be a rather irrelevant law.

    Why does every discussion of abortion have to turn to "rape survivors" when that's such a small percentage of women who actually get abortions?
