LETTER: Who will protect your most basic right to live?
What’s your most basic right? Is it not the right to life? When you go to the voting booth, ask yourself who will fight to protect that right. The party platform of the Democrats is pro-abortion (anti-life). Mr. Weiland and Mr. Pressler are pro-abortion. Mike Rounds has a strong...

LETTER: HB1162 offensive to women of all backgrounds
To the Editor: Legislators in Pierre are again not focusing on the real issues facing South Dakota, but focusing on lowering the quality of women's health care in the state. This time, they're doing it under the guise of banning so-called "sex-selective abortions." Even though...

LETTER: HB 1162 attacks women's right to choose
To the Editor: House Bill 1162 is one of the worst bills to come up this legislative session. The bill would make it a felony to terminate a pregnancy solely because of the sex of the fetus, but supporters can't even identify an instance where that has ever occurred in South...
