The front line of the Roe v. Wade battle is in South Dakota

This past year the South Dakota legislature passed a bill banning abortion in the state, a measure that would go into effect if and when the US Supreme Court overturns the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Saying that pro-abortion activists had a cow over this law would be putting it mildly. After lawsuits failed as did an attempt to set up a clinic on an Indian reservation and declare it sovereign, they’ve now turned to the democratic process, which they usually do as a last resort because they don’t really care about the will of the people, have put a referendum on the law on this November’s ballot.

The Diocese of Sioux Falls is fighting back with A Campaign to Affirm HB 1215 (the docket number of the bill that became the law). They’re sending out packets to every Catholic in the state to educate them about the law and encourage them to vote to affirm it in November. They’re also asking people to sign up on their prayer calendar, to pray for the success of this campaign. That way, even if you’re not a South Dakota voter you can still take part.
