S.D. Requires 3-Day Waiting Period, Pregnancy Center Visit Before Abortion
South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard signed a law today that makes the state the first to require women seeking abortions to first undergo counseling at pregnancy centers. The law also establishes that a woman must wait three days after an initial visit with an abortion provider before the procedure can be done, the longest waiting period in the nation.
The Associated Press reports that Planned Parenthood will challenge the law.
