Restrictions on Low-Income Women's Access to Abortion

South Dakota prohibits public funding for abortion for women unless the procedure is necessary to preserve the woman's life.  S.D. Codified Laws § 28-6-4.5 (Enacted 1978).  This statute conflicts with federal law prohibiting participating states from excluding abortion from the Medicaid program in cases of rape or incest as well as life endangerment.
