SD Oglala Sioux wants to establish Planned Parenthood clinic on tribal land

Thanks to Bitch Ph.D TBLJ found how the President of the Oglala Sioux tribe of South Dakota tribe feels about the states new abortion law.
The President of the Oglala Sioux Tribe on the Pine Ridge Reservation, Cecilia Fire Thunder, was incensed. A former nurse and healthcare giver she was very angry that a state body made up mostly of white males, would make such a stupid law against women. “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.”
