House Bill 1208 bans medication abortion and the dispensal, distribution, manufacture, prescription, sale, or transfer of any medication used for medication abortion. 

The ACLU of South Daktoa opposes House Bill 1208. The decision about whether, when, or how to become a parent is one of the most important life decisions we make. We should be able to do so without barriers and political interference and free from fear or the policing of our bodies. Reproductive freedom is a fundamental constitutional right grounded in the privacy protections of the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution. And laws that restrict our access to abortion are a violation of our civil rights and liberties.
