SOUTH DAKOTA GOVERNOR KRISTI NOEM HAS SIGNED FOUR PRO-LIFE BILLS INTO LAW, INCLUDING HB-1110, WHICH BANS ABORTIONS BASED ON A DIAGNOSIS OF DOWN SYNDROME.

NOEM ISSUED A STATEMENT SAYING “GOD CREATED EACH OF US AND ENDOWED ALL OF US WITH THE RIGHT TO LIFE. THIS IS TRUE FOR EVERYONE, INCLUDING THOSE WITH AN EXTRA CHROMOSOME,”

SHE SAYS SHE IS PLEASED TO SIGN A BAN ON THE ABORTION OF A PRE-BORN CHILD, JUST BECAUSE THAT CHILD IS DIAGNOSED WITH DOWN SYNDROME.

THE THREE OTHER PRO-LIFE BILLS SIGNED WERE SB-183, DECLARING CERTAIN CONTRACT PROVISIONS REGARDING ABORTION AS UNENFORCEABLE, HB-1114 PROVIDING A DEFINITION OF ABORTION AND HB-1130 ESTABLISHING REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PRESENTATION OF A WRITTEN STATEMENT REGARDING THE DISCONTINUANCE OF A DRUG-INDUCED ABORTION.

PREVIOUSLY THIS SESSION GOVERNOR NOEM SIGNED HB-1051, WHICH MAINTAINS THE LIFE OF ANY CHILD BORN ALIVE.
