On Monday, Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem announced that she had introduced a bill in her state’s legislature to ban abortions based on the diagnosis of Down syndrome.

On Twitter, she wrote, “Today, I introduced a bill to ban abortions based on a diagnosis of Down syndrome. God created each of us and endowed all of us with the right to life. This is true for everyone. Even preborn babies. Even those with an extra chromosome.” 

“The Declaration of Independence summarizes what we all know in our hearts to be true: God created each of us and endowed all of us with the right to life. This is true for everyone, including those with an extra chromosome,” said Gov. Noem. 

“I look forward to the day when the Supreme Court recognizes that all preborn children inherently possess this right to life, too. Until that time comes, I am asking the South Dakota legislature to pass a law that bans the abortion of a preborn child, just because that child is diagnosed with Down syndrome.”

The Governor’s press release announcing the legislation cites that two out of every three “Down syndrome pregnancies” end in abortion in America and that media reports illustrate some European counties have all but eliminated children with the diagnosis through abortion.

A governor with courage and common sense along with enough smarts to govern a beautiful state and not let the dems ruin it like they have so many other states
