FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 2, 2022
Pierre, SD – Today, Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America’s Candidate Fund announced its endorsement of Governor Kirsti Noem for re-election.
“Governor Kristi Noem is a hero in the fight for unborn children and their mothers and the model of a pro-life governor,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Noem has advanced one bold idea after another, such as the state’s first Unborn Child Advocate, to save as many lives as possible. She has led the charge to protect children with Down syndrome from lethal discrimination in the womb, stop dangerous mail-order abortion drugs, and more, and under her leadership South Dakota’s abortion rate hit a record low…she has our enthusiastic support and deserves the vote of pro-life South Dakotans in the primary on June 7.”
Upon receiving the endorsement, Governor Noem said, “Every life is a precious gift from God. The innocent unborn need advocates who will never give up the fight to protect them. As a Christian, I view it as my obligation to use my office to advance the rights of the unborn. When I was running for Governor of South Dakota, I pledged to be the most Pro-Life Governor in the nation on day one and we’ve upheld that pledge. This endorsement is an honor and privilege to receive. I want to thank Marjorie and SBA Pro-Life America for their support.”
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
