Premature Birth?

"A South Dakota legislator is hoping his bill outlawing nearly all abortions in the state will be the catalyst for overturning the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, which was handed down exactly 31 years ago.

Rep. Matt McCaulley introduced the bill, House Bill 1191, today. It makes abortion a crime unless it is necessary to save the life of the mother, explained the Thomas More Law Center, which helped in drafting the legislation. "

Apparently they have the votes to pass the law.

I'm for this kind of action, but I wonder if it would be better to wait until SCOTUS had more reliably rational judges serving it. As it now stands, we lose 5-4.

But even if struck down now, this Bill can always be re-introduced and passed by any State in the future.
