Planned Parenthood has spent many years and lots of big bucks fighting this and similar laws in other States. If they truly cared about choice and the actual well-being of their patients, they would celebrate laws that protect women from exploitation and use the money they’ve been funneling into legal fees to provide things like …. oh, I dunno … post-abortion counseling.
Oh. Wait. They said the women who testified to the courts about their post-abortion suffering were dirty liars. I guess Planned Parenthood doesn’t believe its own research. Makes you wonder why they bother to do it.
South Dakota is still fighting Planned Parenthood in the courts over another law intended to protect women from exploitation. This one requires that every woman seeking an abortion talk personally with a physician about pre-existing risk factors (such as coercion) and post-abortion risk factors (like suicide).
Before being scheduled for an abortion, a pregnant woman must show she is making her decision freely and understands the risk factors. She must also be offered the opportunity for counseling by a state-approved counseling center and then required to wait three days before the procedure itself.
Currently, Planned Parenthood does everything as quickly and cheaply as possible. Low level clerks helpfully schedule abortion procedures right there in the waiting room where patients are under the watchful eye of people like incestuous fathers and brothers, abusive teachers and coaches, or adult statutory raping boyfriends who want evidence of their crimes removed. Possible victims of such coercion receive no counseling and never see a physician until AFTER they have signed consent forms, PAID for their abortions and sometimes, maybe often, are already spraddled and anesthetized.
Yup. Planned Parenthood really CARES … just not about women.
