On Tuesday, Gov. Jack Dairymple signed legislation that would give North Dakota the most restrictive abortion laws in the country. The legislation bans the procedure as soon as a fetal heartbeat is detected.
South Dakota Republican Governor Dennis Daugaard on Friday signed into law a measure that excludes weekends and holidays from the state's 72-hour waiting period for abortions, potentially making the wait the longest in the nation.

Until we're allowed to buy OTC birth control, we need Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Rep. Carolyn Maloney's (D-NY) "Access to Birth Control (ABC) Act," reintroduced yesterday, so that pharmacists can't bar women from the pill.
