Vote Yes For Life: South Dakota’s Fight Against Abortion
I had the privilege to take part in the fight to uphold South Dakota’s law and was recognized by Leslee Unruh in her “concession” speech. The same reporters who covered the concession speech had been openly, and sometimes embarrassingly bent upon frustrating our efforts to uphold the law. In the end those who held the cameras and microphones won using their usual tactic of feigned neutrality while supplying heavily biased information.
HB 1215 was defeated when 185,945 South Dakotans (55.57% of the voters) chose to leave preborn children with no legal protection. 148,648 people (44.43% of the voters) voted to uphold HB 1215 which would have protected human beings from conception.
