Pending their Governor's signature, South Dakota has passed a law making abortion illegal.
This means that abortion will be illegal in one of the fifty United States for the first time since Roe vs. Wade.
The law will be challenged immediately, where it will be struck down immediately by lower level courts who must obey previous Supreme Court precedent. But, it will doubtless be appealed to the Supreme Court, where that precedent might finally be overturned.
Most interestingly, this is garnering relatively few headlines. If I were NARAL, that fact would terrify me.
