Bully Pulpit

Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

South Dakota abortion law to go before voters Nov. 7

Winston-Salem Journal

Voters will have the final say on South Dakota's new law that bans almost all abortions.

Secretary of State Chris Nelson said yesterday that the law's opponents had collected enough signatures to put a question on the Nov. 7 ballot asking voters if the law should go into effect or be dumped.

The state's abortion law, among the strictest in the nation, bans the procedure in all cases except when necessary to save a woman's life, with no exceptions for rape or incest.
