The South Dakota "Life Protection Litigation" Subfund
The Law Librarian has a very informative post on the legislative history of South Dakota's Women's Health and Human Life Protection Act [don't you just love the communist propaganda template used to name this Bill?].
Here's something I didn't know:
Funding the defense of HB 1215 may come from an unusual source. Litigation expense can easily soar beyond $1 million, well beyond the financial means of the State. A truly ingenious solution to this funding crunch is being sought. Pursuant to recently introduced legislation, a "life protection litigation" subfund would be established under the State's existing extraordinary litigation fund. Private donations could then be deposited into this fund. To quote from the Village Voice, "the well-heeled opponents of abortion are going to hire the public state government to fight their battle."
