Senate Bill No. 85
Our Position: Support
The South Dakota Catholic Conference supports the passage of Senate Bill 85, which would direct the state Department of Health to release its annual abortion report on July 1. The law currently provides for abortion data to be published November 15. This earlier date would make the information available to citizens before summer fairs, thus promoting a wider distribution of up-to-date statistics on abortion in the state. SB 85 seeks to equip citizens to share timely data on the evil of abortion in South Dakota.
