Now is the appropriate time for this legislation.
I know the inner workings of the Legislature and the personalities, and I know it had to be this year. There's a window of time and this is it.
The women are coming forward. They're feeling like there's hope.
I know South Dakota politics. The people of South Dakota stand for life, for protecting an unborn child.
Do not make it easy for them. Make them work for every little signature they can get.
This is it. We're number-one on this in our country and I think it's really important for everybody in South Dakota to be thanking their legislators who made this happen.
It's the right thing. It's like Martin Luther King's approach it's never the wrong time to do what's right. South Dakota is in a unique position to do something for the 800 children aborted every year.
I can promise you that's not going to happen, there's enough people who care about this issue who have come forward already.
We're gearing up for a huge campaign.
I think that Planned Parenthood is afraid to go to court. If they want to go about it with the ballot, we're ready for that. We knew that this would possibly come up.
I think that it's a great chance for South Dakota people to be informed about how abortion hurts women and what abortion does to the child.
This is a desperate maneuver to avoid a legal confrontation where the facts and evidence presented will overwhelmingly support enforcement of the South Dakota abortion ban. The court will recognize the evidence that human life begins at conception and that abortion is harmful to women.
South Dakota's legislature heard the cry of those who have been harmed by abortion and passed this bill to protect women and children.
When the pregnant mothers realize that abortion involves the termination of the life of a human being, they look at the procedure in a different light. It is not taken lightly and for most of the women this fact is of critical importance and leads them to search for other alternatives.
People ask who will take care of these women if abortion is banned. This Fleet for Little Feet has been a dream for several years. Now is the time to finally make it a reality.
