South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem defended the state’s ban of a FDA approved abortion pill.
“It’s something that should be under the supervision of a medical doctor and it is something in South Dakota that we’ve made sure happens that way at the state level,” Noem said during a interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation.”
Noem made the case “certain protections” are guarded under the Constitution, “the rest of these items are left to the states, the 10th Amendment guarantees us that.”
“What the Supreme Court said was that the Constitution does not give a woman the right to have an abortion. That means that in each state they will make the decision how they handle these situations.” Noem said. “in South Dakota we’ve already had a bill passed…on telemedicine abortions, that we don’t believe it should be available, because it is a dangerous situation for those individuals without being medically supervised by a physician.”
