In January 2016, South Dakota Senator Jeff Monroe introduced an unconstitutional 20-week ban on abortion. The bill would ban all abortions at 20 weeks post-fertilization and contains only a narrow exception to either save the woman’s life or to prevent the risk of substantial and irreversible physical impairment of a major bodily function. The ban is currently in effect.

Restrictions: 
Unconstitutionally limits abortion by gestational age after viability
Prohibits later abortion except to preserve a woman's life or physical (but not mental) health
