I Nominate Cecilia Fire Thunder

I nominate Cecilia Fire Thunder for an Everyday Genius Award. She’s starting up a Planned Parenthood on the Oglala Sioux reservation, sovereign territory where the laws of the state of South Dakota have no jurisdiction. As president of the Pine Ridge Oglala Sioux, she’s also a nurse and health practitioner who believes South Dakota’s new anti-choice laws are anti-women laws. (ETA: The law making a pregnat woman who elects to terminate her pregnancy a felon was signed into law by the South Dakota governor on March 6, 2006, and repealed by referendum on November 7, 2006.)
