To the Editor:

I was inspired to write due to Rep. Josh Klumb's excellent defense of HBA 1008 (March 8). Surely the people of South Dakota elected our governor to promote "decency, common sense, honesty and safety." But our governor decided to give a great deal of publicity and credibility to those who identify as "transgender" by meeting with them and then siding with them by vetoing the transgender bathroom bill.

Now the very real possibility in a smaller school of an 8-year-old girl having to use the restroom with a high school boy who identifies as female is seemingly condoned by state government. This is not right.

It is not likely the governor will be so understanding if someone identifies as "governor" and comes into his Capitol office and sits behind the governor's desk. I would expect to see increased security at the governor's office. Maybe someone would be so bold as to state that this is not normal.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard is the highest elected member of the Republican Party in South Dakota. He has greatly disappointed many of us who have supported him since he ran in the primary as a decent, hard-working guy who came from humble beginnings.

Gov. Daugaard did come to the support of the weakest among us by signing into law the pro-life bill. Good job, governor, for doing the right thing in this instance.

We have a long way to go to protect innocent life. Since Jan. 22, 1973, more than 57,503,263 American Citizens and 1,320,218,569 children worldwide have been discriminated to death by elective abortion. (Source: Life Date-Spring 2016).
