So it begins.  With a new look to the Supreme Court, South Dakota’s legislature and governor have decided to roll their holy dice and challenge Roe v. Wade.  In a sweeping bill, South Dakota has defied the Supreme Court and have banned abortion to all women, unless their lives are in danger.

Hopefully their gamble will backfire and their bill will be shot down in the Court.  This would strengthen Roe, almost beyond reach of the Anti-Choice Movement.  But as sad as it might sound, I believe that this is only wishful thinking.  The Court may not overturn Roe, but they now have the chance to weaken it significantly.  I believe that this marks the beginning of a giant step backwards for the country.
