Groundbreaking Abortion Report Approved in South Dakota

PIERRE, S.D., Dec. 9 /U.S. Newswire/ -- After hours of debate, the South Dakota Taskforce to Study Abortion approved a groundbreaking report on the effects of abortion on women, children and society.
The report examined the available scientific research, expert testimony, affidavits, and public testimony to determine the effects of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision. The report includes findings on the physical and emotional complications of abortion, the lack of proof that condom-based sex education prevents teen pregnancy, and the destruction abortion has wrecked on the family structure.
The approval did not come without extreme antics from those who want to keep abortion legal, according to the Alpha Center.
Previously, Kate Looby of Planned Parenthood and a member of the Taskforce had threatened to leave the meeting if things did not go her way. Today, appearing frustrated, Ms. Looby left the meeting abruptly, saying, "I'm sick of this."
A supporter of Ms. Looby's, Sen. Stan Adelstein, followed Ms. Looby out of the meeting, making profane statements as he exited.
"The Taskforce worked long and hard to consider all the information that was brought forward," commented Leslee Unruh, founder of the Alpha Center, the largest pregnancy center in South Dakota, and whose husband, Dr. Allen Unruh, is on the taskforce. "Kate's actions seem very staged to me. She left with only a few minutes remaining in the day. Kate was argumentative all day, and in the end, even after the Taskforce made some of her changes, she walked. She lobbied against the Taskforce when it was in the legislature and then worked to be appointed to the Taskforce. She has been speaking publicly against the Taskforce ever since it began. This is just the final desperate act to distract media attention away from a great, groundbreaking report on the real dangers of abortion!"
The Alpha Center has been helping women and families facing an unplanned pregnancy since 1984. Over the last twenty-one years, women of all ages from various cultural backgrounds have received the help and support they needed when faced with a crisis pregnancy.
