I'll just add this link here: -- there's information on how to send donations to the Oglala Sioux Tribe, in support of their Planned Parenthood Clinic.

Regarding the recent bill signed into law by the Governor of South Dakota,

"The President of the Oglala Sioux Tribe on the Pine Ridge Reservation, Cecilia Fire Thunder, was incensed. A former nurse and healthcare giver she was very angry that a state body made up mostly of white males, would make such a stupid law against women.

β€œTo me, it is now a question of sovereignty,” she said to me last week. β€œI will personally establish a Planned Parenthood clinic on my own land which is within the boundaries of the Pine Ridge Reservation where the State of South Dakota has absolutely no jurisdiction.”

Strong words from a very strong lady. I hope Ms. Fire Thunder challenges Gov. Rounds and the state legislators on this law that is an affront to all independent women." This was from ( , and has been sent out around the internet.
