Yes, South Dakota has already passed an abortion ban, and 10 other states are now considering legislation that would criminalize the procedure, too. They are: Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee and West Virginia.

If this drumbeat of news makes you despair, attend one of the pro-choice rallies being held today in 33 states around the country. Planned Parenthood has declared Thursday, March 9, a National Day of Solidarity with South Dakota. To find an event near you, click here.


I know what you're thinking: a little late for another rally, eh? Alito and Roberts are both already on the Supreme Court! Yet, the antiabortion legislation bubbling up in so many states is a grim reminder that if Roe v. Wade is in fact overturned, this battle will be fought on a state-by-state basis. So it still makes good sense to remind your reps what you think about it now by speaking out.
