South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem urged lawmakers Tuesday to protect unborn babies from abortion by passing a heartbeat bill in the new legislative session.
In her state of the state address, Noem said she plans to introduce legislation soon to prohibit abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy, the Associated Press reports.
“Today, I am asking all of you to protect the heartbeats of these unborn children,” Noem said. “I am bringing legislation to ban all abortions once a heartbeat can be detected.”
The Republican governor has a strong pro-life record. After the Biden administration got rid of safety regulations for the abortion drug mifepristone late last year, her administration moved swiftly to ban abortion businesses from selling abortion drugs through the mail. And last spring, in a historic moment, the state legislature unanimously passed Noem’s bill to ban discriminatory abortions on unborn babies with Down syndrome.
“In South Dakota, we protect freedom, and we will pass it on to our children, and we will not allow freedom to go extinct,” Noem promised Tuesday in her speech.
