Editorial: 72-hour wait on abortion seems to be reasonableGov. Dennis Daugaard has before him a decision that could be one of the first major challenges, beyond the budget deficit, in his short time in office.
The governor, who opposes abortion rights, is considering giving final approval of a bill that would create a longer waiting period for women who wish to get an abortion in South Dakota. The new waiting time would require women to wait 72 hours before they could undergo the procedure, which would be the longest required wait in the country.
