Fighting The South Dakota Abortion Ban

I will be leaving bright and early tomorrow morning for Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Through Planned Parenthood, I received a scholarship to head out there for a Live Action Camp, where we’ll be fighting Measure 11, the ballot initiative aiming to outlaw abortion in the state.

Sadly, I do not have a laptop. And in any case, it looks like I’ll be moving around a lot so I wouldn’t have much time to live-blog, anyway. Nor would I want a laptop to deal with while canvassing door-to-door. But, I do have a cell phone. You can follow what’s going on this weekend via my Twitter page. I’ll be sending in updates and hopefully even pictures the whole time. There’s a widget in the sidebar that you can scroll through using the little arrows at the bottom, or you can just go directly to the twitter page. And then, of course, I’ll properly blog about the experience when I get back.

See you all soon . . . and enjoy tomorrow’s post on the Yoko Ono exhibit I visited last week.

    I went out there the last time they pulled this nonsense in 2006 and we were successful. It irritates me that they continuously try the same thing over and over again. Best of luck, my fingers are crossed for you guys!
    Peace,

    There is an initiative on the Colorado ballot this year to change the definition of person-hood to a fertilized egg. It’s pretty scary stuff!

    Very well, Nick 🙂 Thanks for asking. I’ve been totally swamped since I got back, and it is my goal for tomorrow to get my post up on the subject. Keep your fingers crossed, because I’ve actually started feeling like I’m coming down with a cold or something this afternoon. Ugh.
