SD abortion ban signed into law

I hate this man right now:

Today, at about 2pm, South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds signed the abortion ban into law.

It wasn't unexpected, but still no less disappointing.
It won't go into effect until July 1st, but a federal judge will probably issue an injunction on its enforcement until it goes through the court system. All the way to the Supreme Court. Which now most likely has enough anti-choice assholes to overturn Roe.

Oh, it's a bad day for women and their reproductive autonomy, or what was left of it. A bad, bad day.

Planned Parenthood's press release.
To donate to Planned Parenthood to help cover the costs of the lawsuit they'll be filing post-haste: go here.
