Legal Abortion in South Dakota

Cecilia Fire Thunder, president of the Oglala Sioux tribe of South Dakota, is going to make the GOoPers in South Dakota pretty pissed. Via Salon:

Today, Broadsheet salutes Cecilia Fire Thunder, first female president of the Oglala Sioux tribe of South Dakota and a longtime advocate of domestic violence prevention and other true family-friendliness. Here’s her response to her state’s abortion ban (which Tim Giago at Indianz.com called “a stupid law against women” created by “a state body made up mostly of white males"):

“To me, it is now a question of sovereignty,” she told Giago. “I 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.”
Let's see what the idiot Republican legislature will do about that!

UPDATE: 12:49 pm 3.23.06
Donations (Pine Ridge Reservation doesn't exactly have a ton of cash on hand) can be mailed to:
