South Dakota legislators rebuff both pro-life, pro-LGBT advocates

The SD Senate, by a subcommittee action, stalled Senate Bill 92, which would have required doctors to meet with women seeking abortions one day prior to taking the life. This would have made abortions more difficult to obtain, since the doctors who provide them here come in from out of state (mainly Minnesota).

The full Senate voted down SB 156, which would have added "sexual orientation and gender identification" as protected classes under existing "hate crime" law.

The full array of bills before the legislature and other information are available here.
