This is so awesome. Cecilia Fire Thunder, the President of the Oglala Sioux Tribe at the Pine Ridge Reservation, is challenging the new abortion law in South Dakota.
“To me, it is now a question of sovereignty,” she said to me last week. “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.”

Of course it would be even more awesome if South Dakota hadn't banned abortions in the first place.
