A South Dakota legislative committee approved another pro-life action by Gov. Kristi Noem on Thursday to protect mothers and unborn babies from lethal abortion drugs.
Life News reports:
DRG News reports the state Interim Rules Review Committee voted in favor of a rule that prohibits abortion drugs from being prescribed by mail or telemedicine, meaning the mother may never see a doctor in person.
The governor pointed to studies that found a high rate of emergency room visits among women after taking the drug.
“And we have a duty to protect the lives of those women,” Noem said. “I look forward to the day when the life of every unborn child is protected in South Dakota. Until then, South Dakotans will know that if a mother uses abortion pills to end her unborn child’s life, she will not get those pills from a stranger over the internet.”
The new rule, slated to go into effect later this month, requires that abortion facilities give abortion drugs to the woman in person under the supervision of a medical professional, according to the report.
