  • SD Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed a bill to require women seeking abortions to wait 72 hours and get counseling at a pregnancy center. The law takes effect July 1. The ACLU and Planned Parenthood in SD plan to file a lawsuit against the law.
  • The DE House passed legislation which is supposedly designed to allow abortion clinics to be inspected but the Democratic sponsors didn’t want abortion mentioned in the legislation. Planned Parenthood of DE supports the legislation:

    House Minority Leader Greg Lavelle sought to add language to make it clear that abortion clinics would be subject to inspections. He noted the bill specifically singles out podiatrists and dentists as falling under the proposed regulations.

    “We’re here for a reason and it’s not podiatry, it’s not dentistry,” said Lavelle, RSharpley. “It’s because of the lack of oversight [of abortion clinics].”

  • Various news outlets are reporting Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown opposes the defunding of Planned Parenthood. From the part of his statement that is quoted, it’s difficult to tell if he opposes defunding PP or is opposed to completely cutting Title X funding. He’s already been praised by NARAL.
