South Dakota Abortion Clinic on Native American Reservation

This was a really interesting story... (audio will be available shortly)

Indian Tribe May Open Abortion Clinic on Its Land

I had to search Google News for more information:

Thunder Power
The pro-choice movement has a new hero, and she speaks the truth with the power of fire and thunder

Just two weeks after South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds signed the state's extreme abortion ban with no exceptions for rape and incest, Cecelia Fire Thunder, the first woman president of the Oglala Sioux tribe, made national headlines after saying she would personally set up a clinic on her tribe's land in South Dakota to preserve a woman's right to choose. There is currently only one clinic in the entire state of South Dakota that provides abortions, and its status, since the ban, is endangered.
