The guests participated by remote connection from Sioux Falls about the abortion ballot initiative in South Dakota on whether to approve a law signed by Republican Governor Mike Rounds making abortion a crime except to save a pregnant woman’s life. The state’s legislature passed the law in February to prompt a court challenge expecting the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn its 1973 Roe v.
