Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem on Tuesday expressed her support for a law banning abortions due to a fetal diagnosis of Down syndrome.
Noem said in her 2021 State of the State speech that she is calling on the South Dakota legislature to pass such a law.
“The Declaration of Independence summarizes what we all know in our hearts to be true,” Noem said.
“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.”
Former Republican Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy and commentator Rachel Campos Duffy were present with their daughter Valentina, who has Down syndrome.
