Kristi Noem says that she won’t let ‘the tragedy’ of children getting pregnant through rape lead to another tragedy in her state by allowing cases like these to lead to abortion

Kristi Noem declared on Sunday that she would not permit situations like these to result in abortions in order to avoid “the tragedy” of rape-related child pregnancies in her state.

When questioned if a “kid” should have to give birth, the Republican governor of South Dakota told CNN’s Dana Bash, “Every single life is valuable.” It is a terrible disaster. I simply cannot imagine.

Noem continued, “I don’t think one tragedy should be made worse by another.”

She stated during her interview on State of the Union Sunday morning, “And so there’s more that we’ve got to do to make sure that we really are living a life that says every life is sacred, especially innocent lives that have been destroyed, like that 10-year-old child.”

The reaction followed the implementation of trigger laws in 13 states following the Roe v. Wade decision and the tragic story of an Ohio 10-year-old girl who had to cross state borders to end her pregnancy after being raped.

One of the states with these so-called trigger laws is South Dakota.

Adam Kinzinger, a Republican from Illinois who served with Noem in the House, claimed that she has changed since Trump’s backing.

In his own interview with Bash on Sunday morning, he said, “I served with Kristi Noem in the House, and it’s like ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’.”

He continued, “This is not the Kristi Noem I served with.” The Kristi Noem I served with was conservative, committed to the truth, and, at the time, I believed she would have always placed her country’s interests ahead of her political career.

He continued, “Look, Dana, it’s obvious she’s running for president or vice president.” She is utterly terrified of the base. She once had a quite different personality.

Republican Noem, a supporter of Donald Trump, asserted on Sunday that the subject of this particular case should be the offender who sexually assaulted the 10-year-old girl.

In South Dakota, there is an exception to the state’s ban on abortions in cases when the mother’s life would be in danger if she chose to carry the child to term.

In light of the potential physical and psychological harm giving birth could bring about, CNN commentator Dana Bashed questioned whether permitting a young child to have an abortion would be protecting her life.

On this issue, she acquiesced and praised the fact that legislation may vary from state to state.

Yes, the doctor, the family, and the people who are closest to the circumstance will decide what is best for the family, Noem said Bash.

The moment we are in is interesting since every state will have its own set of laws, according to this statement.

The MPs who are closest to the people will make the decisions, she continued.

That is suitable. It’s how our Constitution was meant to be read.

And I believe that South Dakota’s legislation could be very different from those of California and New York, where the governor has stated that she wants her state to be known for offering abortions.

That’s not the case in South Dakota, I’m sorry.

And I believe that every governor and state will decide on the structure of their legislation in quite diverse ways.

Last Friday, the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, ending federal safeguards for abortion rights and returning the matter to the states.

The nearly 50-year-old statute guaranteed women’s access to abortions nationwide, but in recent years, states have pushed the envelope by tightening the deadlines for terminating pregnancies.

The 1973 decision was overturned in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization after the conservative majority determined that Mississippi may establish and execute a legislation barring abortion at 15 weeks, or the beginning of the second trimester.

Is abortion a state-granted right? Or should it not be considered a state right? During their conversation on Sunday morning, Bash asked Noem.

She agreed with the latest judgment, stating that it should unquestionably be decided at the state level.

However, Noem wouldn’t completely rule out backing a federal ban on abortion.

After Ohio outlawed abortion in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a 10-year-old victim of child abuse was compelled to seek an abortion in Indiana.

The mother was just a few days away from becoming a candidate for the operation in her native state at six weeks and three days pregnant with the child.

After Ohio outlawed abortions after six weeks – hours after the 6-3 Supreme Court decision – a child abuse doctor in Ohio asked Dr. Caitlin Bernard, an obstetrician-gynecologist in Indianapolis, for assistance on Monday so that she might assist the girl in getting an abortion.

Ohio’s six-week abortion restriction was challenged by abortion activists, but the judge on Friday rejected their request.

According to Fox 59, as of Friday, Indiana’s lone abortion limitation required clinics to ask women if their abortion was forced upon them, which is against the law.

After the Indiana General Assembly hearing on July 25, additional restrictions can be enacted in the state, bringing the law’s effective date to July 1.

It’s difficult to believe that we won’t be able to offer that service in just a few short weeks, Bernard told The Columbus Dispatch.

Until then, Indiana abortion doctors believe they have experienced the effects of Roe v. Wade, claiming they have seen a rise in out-of-state patients seeking the procedure, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

Patients in need of an operation have been received from The Women’s Med, an Indiana abortion clinic with a facility in Ohio.

An OBGYN in Indiana, Dr. Katie McHugh, has seen “an incredible quantity of requests” from women seeking abortions in Kentucky and Ohio.

According to McHugh, she sees five to eight out-of-state patients every day, and other facilities help roughly 20 women each day.

When Kentucky’s “trigger law” took effect as a result of the Roe decision, abortion clinics were compelled to close.

Roe v. Wade was overturned, allowing states to determine whether to impose limitations or outright bans on the procedure.

Along with Arkansas, Idaho, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming, Kentucky was one of the twelve states to enact trigger legislation that would criminalize abortion in the event that Roe was overturned.

To prevent the state from enforcing the abortion ban, a Kentucky judge on Thursday granted a temporary restraining order.

Florida and other states are also pushing to enact new bans and limitations, along with states like Indiana, Montana, Nebraska, Georgia, Iowa, and South Carolina.

Advocates flocked to state courts after the 1973 abortion right was overturned to prevent limitations that were set to go into place in 22 states.

Abortion clinics are also requesting temporary halts to state-enacted prohibitions in Ohio, Idaho, West Virginia, and Mississippi.
