FULL TITLE: South Dakota Passes Bill Requiring Planned Parenthood to Tell Women Abortion Kills a “Living Human Being”

South Dakota lawmakers passed a pro-life bill Monday that requires abortion facilities to tell women that an abortion kills a “living human being.”

The informed consent bill passed the state legislature with strong support and now heads to Gov. Dennis Daugaard, who is expected to sign it, the Argus Leader reports. On Monday, 56 state representatives supported the bill, while nine opposed it.

South Dakota requires abortion facilities to tell women that an abortion will “terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being” and can increase risks of physical and mental health problems, including depression and suicide.

State Senate Bill 110 will help to ensure that women seeking abortions receive accurate information prior to making a final decision. Concerns were raised about Planned Parenthood, the only abortion facility in South Dakota, couching the required informed consent information in a dubious light.

Here’s more from the local news:

Senate Bill 110 asserts that physicians at Sioux Falls’ Planned Parenthood clinic, the state’s lone abortion provider, violated informed consent laws when they prefaced legally-required statements with the phrase, “Politicians in the State of South Dakota require us to tell you.”

National reproductive health groups said the bill is the first of its kind in its effort to write into state statute what physicians must tell patients, but also what they ought not to say.

“I haven’t seen a proposal this prescriptive before,” said Elizabeth Nash, senior state issues manager at the reproductive rights think tank Guttmacher Institute. “It would really do a lot of damage.”

Informed consent laws help women make the best decisions for themselves and their unborn babies. They are important because abortion facilities sometimes lie to women or give them limited information about the effects of an abortion on her and her child.

Many states require that women be provided with information about the development of their unborn babies, abortion risks and alternatives to abortion. Some also require that women be offered the opportunity to hear their unborn baby’s heartbeat or see their ultrasound image.

South Dakota is one of only a handful of states that also requires women to be told that the abortion drug RU-486 possibly can be reversed to save their unborn baby’s life.

Last year GOV. BRUCE RAUNER, ILLINOIS, signed tax-payer abortion HB40 into law that designated a baby in the womb as a NON HUMAN. Evil.

Every woman who gets an abortion can claim to be ignorant of the fact that their is a human growing inside of them. BUT, I dont believe a single one of them. You know why you have stopped bleeding every month, just like you know what is going to happen in 7 or 8 months.

God has blessed you even though you are as human as human can be. HE loves you so much that he blessed you and you want to take that blessing and Kill it and throw it in the trash!

There have been other cases where government has been forbidden from prescribing speech. And it doesn’t need a leftist to uphold that precedent. It’s not equivalent to the Surgeon General warnings on cigarettes, where the vendor tells what someone else says.

Let’s be careful lest we get a precedent that some government may make you say something as though from you that you believe is untrue.

Agreed. They know exactly what they are doing no matter how they try to justify it as part of their body or a choice.

Talk about your circular logic...

Gotta TELL ‘em it’s a BABY (aka ‘a human life’), but the State is STILL gonna let ya KILL IT.

But woe to someone whom causes a preg. woman’s death, they’ll get slapped with TWO counts of murder.

Either it’s a LIFE, which it *IS*, and thus entitled to the same Rights as all others (thus, the practice of abortion should be abolished), or it is not. Enough of the duplicitous B.S.

No word on whether Planned Butcherhood would obey this or any pro-life law.
