I typically don't like the "except in the case of rape and incest" exemptions in reference to abortion. But in this case, I may concede the exception. Why? Because it would be tough to lose the momentum that South Dakota has gained in the fight against abortion.

South Dakota House Committee Signs Off on Second Abortion Ban
Abortions in cases of rape and incest are very rare -- accounting for less than one percent of all abortions according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute

Kate Looby, state director of Planned Parenthood in South Dakota, says her group is opposed to the bill and complained about the rape reporting provisions, saying they are too much of a burden for women who are victims.
I love when the PP people refer to victims. They forget that abortion also has victims. Two of them; one dead, one wounded.
