By Dale Bartscher, Executive Director, South Dakota Right to Life
Abortion is a scar on our culture and a deep wound on our world. Nowhere in the United States Constitution is there any mention of abortion or of the “right” to kill a baby. It is therefore a welcome step by the Supreme Court to correct the egregious errors that were made in Roe and Casey.
SD Right to Life is committed to building on the victory in this case as we work with our Governor, Legislators, and all elected officials to provide protection to these most vulnerable human beings. Moreover, we are committed to educate our fellow citizens that the children in the womb are as human as the rest of us, and that abortion not only kills them but harms their Moms, Dads, families, and all of us.
We look forward to the day when all will recognize their duty to protect the unborn and bring an end to the violence of abortion
Over the last year 360 pro-life bills were filed in state legislatures (4 of them here in South Dakota). There were 24,000 fewer abortions post-Dobbs. And that’s even with increases in places like California. So these are steps forward.
Some of those steps, including the overturning of Roe v. Wade, have been monumental. Together we march forward with grace and love!
