During an interview on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday, Republican South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem explained her decision to immediately ban abortions in the state, arguing that the ban is about “the rights and freedoms” for every life.
SOUTH DAKOTA GOVERNOR KRISTI NOEM: I think it is important for this country to recognize that every life is precious. The decision we had this week is the one that now transfers that authority to the states where elected officials will make those decisions in South Dakota. We already had a trigger law in place. So from today abortions are illegal in our stateand they are only allowed to save the life of the mother.
And I think it’s very appropriate that we now focus on supporting women who are in crisis, who have unplanned pregnancies, and see what we can do to support them and ensure may these babies end up in homes that are good and loving. homes or that we help these parents to become parents.
