KELO-TV/Argus Leader Poll: Measure 11 React

October 26, 2008, 9:55 PM by Don Jorgensen

KELO-TV/Argus Leader Poll: Measure 11 React
With just over a week before the election, the battle over abortion in South Dakota is heating up. 

According to our KELOLAND TV/Argus Leader poll the vote on Initiated Measure 11 is too close to call.
44% say yes 44% say no, while 12% are still undecided. 

With these latest numbers, supporters of Initiated Measure 11 feel they're in great shape to finally pass an abortion ban in South Dakota. 

"People are being educated we have materials that are debunking some of the advertising being done by our opponents and I think once people learn that a lot of those medical issues are completely covered under measure 11 we'll see even a larger spread and we're really confident on the polls November 4th," said Brandi Gruis a pro-life supporter. 

However, representatives of South Dakota Campaign for Healthy Families, who support pro-choice, say voters might be confused about the implications of Initiated Measure 11. 

"The poll tells us we have a lot of work to do between now and the election day to get our word out about government intrusion and impact has on the relationship of a doctor and the woman they are working with," said Jan Nicolay. 

Nicolay says the abortion bill is complicated. 

"If you read it it's very difficult to understand and that's why from the very beginning our challenge has been to try and get people to understand and visit with the medical community and legal community to make sure our interpretation was accurate. And we feel that we are because we have run that by the appropriate people," said Nicolay. 

Unlike the Referred Law 6, two years ago, the current bill does allow exceptions for incest, rape, and the health of the mother. 

"That was one of the things people said they needed was those exceptions to be comfortable with ending abortion as birth control." said Gruis. 

But whether or not that'll be the difference this time around, remains to be seen.
