It is time to pay some serious attention to our eroding right to an abortion in our country. Little by little, state legislatures and our federal government have been limiting our rights and it must be stopped. In addition to the complete ban on abortion passed by the state of South Dakota, the United States Senate voted today to make it illegal to transport a pregnant girl into a different state in order for her to obtain an abortion. This is horrible news. Already, states such as Mississippi offer only one clinic where a woman can get an abortion. Those of us who have daughters should be especially concerned our country is headed back towards the days of illegal, back alley, life-threatening abortions.
