South Dakota rejects abortion ban.

The statewide abortion ban on the mid-term election ballot in South Dakota failed to pass by a vote of 45-55 percent. If passed, South Dakota would have been the first state to ban most every form of abortion since the 1973 Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision, making it "legal" for a woman to kill her unborn child.

Abortion advocates have claimed victory, but the pro-life movement insists that this is not a defeat. Judie Brown, president of the American Life League, states in a news release that the "fact that we came so close should tell naysayers that there is indeed hope that such a ban will be enacted--not today, but certainly one day soon."
