For some time now, the political tide has been running against supporters of abortion rights.

That’s because the opponents got smart. They started focusing the battle on issues like parental notification and late-term abortions.

I’ve watched these polls for more than 20 years now.

Americans are fundamentally split about abortion. They don’t like it, but they recognize it is sometimes the right thing to do. But they want it restricted as much as possible.

They’re “pro-choice” and “pro-life” at the same time – unlike anybody in politics.

Now comes the South Dakota legislature.

In their wisdom, the distinguished South Dakota Legislators in Pierre decided to ban all abortions. Including in cases involving rape and incest and when the mother’s health is threatened.

I suspect that is a much more favorable debate for the abortion-rights supporters.
