Pierre, SD – South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem wrapped a very big week for the conservative agenda and conservative values with the signing of two pro-life bills into law. Yesterday, she signed HB 1318 which prohibits medical abortion by telemedicine and increases the penalty for the unlicensed practice of medicine when performing a medical abortion. She also signed HB 1113 which prohibits threats made with the intent to coerce an abortion.
“These two bills are more fulfillment of Governor Noem’s pledge to be the most pro-life Governor in the nation,” said Noem campaign manager Joe Desilets.
Mr. Desilets added, “These bill signings concluded what may be the most impressive legislative achievement week of any Governor this year and it shows in the support she’s receiving.”
The campaign reported that they’ve surpassed the 50,000 donor mark, with 98.2% of the donations coming from individuals and just 0.4% from political action committees.
“Governor Noem is fighting for the citizens of South Dakota on many fronts,” Mr. Desilets added. “These signings wrap up a week that saw the Governor sign bills into law to protect 2nd Amendment rights, ban big-tech interference in our elections, keep Critical Race Theory out of our schools, improve readiness capabilities for the South Dakota National Guard, and strengthen our water and infrastructure projects.”
“Governor Noem was recently listed as the number one Governor in America by the American Legislative Exchange Council. That combined with fact that our donor base has gone over 50,000 is a testament to the Governor’s solid conservative leadership and is a blueprint for others to govern all around the country,” Mr. Desilets concluded.
