  South Dakota Senate Passes Bill Requiring 72 Hour Wait Before Abortion

Counseling is a good thing, and hopefully will lead to a reduction in the post abortion suicide rate

I don't have a problem with waiting, but the counseling should be about them... Not someone's moral or political agenda. Ask them WHY they want the abortion and listen to the women... Not sit there and push your beliefs of her.

They have no business forcing someone to submit for counseling...and with an agenda...

Its so hard to get someone with a mental illness help...and here they want to force counseling on women who don't want it!?

Yes lets wait to educate them after the fact..they wasn't responsible enough to prevent it and we want to trust them as responsible parents?
