Inside KELOLAND: Abortion ban on ballot & Sesquicentennial

June 25, 2006, 10:25 AM by Karen Olson

It was at the end of February that South Dakota lawmakers attracted national, even worldwide, attention after passing a bill that would ban most abortions in the state. Governor Mike Rounds signed it into law on March 6th and by the end of that month, a group wanting to put the issue to a public vote was circulating petitions.  Volunteers with South Dakota Campaign for Healthy Families went door-to-door to collect signatures.  This past week, Secretary of State Chris Nelson announced the volunteers had collected enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot. It means that the abortion ban won't go into effect on July first as it otherwise would have, but it also means the months before the November election will be filled with campaigning.

Sioux Falls, which was recently named one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, is celebrating its sesquicentennial. It was 150 years ago that the city was founded. A variety of events is scheduled for residents to take part in. For a complete listing, click here.
