Oglala Sioux President Cecelia Fire Thunder under fire
Tribal council outlaws abortion President suspended for alleged donations

The Oglala Sioux tribal council banned all abortions on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and suspended President Cecelia Fire Thunder on Tuesday, charging that she solicited donations on behalf of the tribe for a proposed abortion clinic without the council's approval.

"It was unauthorized political activity," said Will Peters, a tribal council representative from the Pine Ridge district. "It's just a matter of failing to communicate not only with the governing body but with the people that she was elected to serve."

I feared something like this, but Cecelia knows the territory and I applaud her for doing and saying what she felt was right regardless.

It is important to remind people that SHE never solicited donations...
