Democrublicans: Julie Bartling

"A contentious abortion bill passed the South Dakota Senate late this afternoon. The vote was 23 to 12. [...] House Bill 1215 would ban most abortions in South Dakota. [...] Democrat Sen. Julie Bartling of Burke said the time is right for the ban on abortion. 'In my opinion, it is the time for this South Dakota Legislature to deal with this issue and protect the rights and lives of unborn children,' she said during the Senate's debate. 'There is a movement across this country of the wishes to save and protect the lives of unborn children.'" - story
