South Dakota bans most abortions
Mon Mar 6, 2006 10:48 PM ET
By Michael Conlon

CHICAGO (Reuters) - The Republican governor of South Dakota on Monday signed a law banning nearly all abortions in the state, directly challenging the U.S. Supreme Court's legalization of the practice 33 years ago.

The action cleared the path for a legal battle that will take years to resolve, Gov. Mike Rounds predicted, and forces on both sides of the issue immediately began to mobilize.

he law bans abortion in almost all cases, punishing doctors who perform one with five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. It bans abortion even in cases where a woman is pregnant as a result of rape or incest, or if giving birth would damage the health of the mother.

It creates a narrow exemption in cases in which a physician's effort to save a pregnant woman's life results in the accidental death or injury of her fetus.

No suits against the law were filed immediately. But Planned Parenthood, which operates the sole abortion clinic in South Dakota where about 800 of the procedures are performed each year by doctors from neighboring Minnesota, said it was preparing a challenge.
