(ETH) – South Dakota Governor. Kristi Noem, R., is reportedly proposing a bill to the legislature that would prevent abortion for babies based on Down syndrome diagnoses.
On Fox and Friends Noem stated “Today, I give the people of South Dakota an update on where we sit as a state, the challenging year that we’ve had but also where we can go from here in the opportunities we can grasp a hold of for families. I will talk about strong families, our economy, how to invest in our future and protecting life,”
Noem was also accompanied by Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy, her husband, former Wisconsin GOP Rep. Sean Duffy, and their daughter Valentina, who was born with Down syndrome. Noem stated that it is an “incredible conversation to have” and that “every life is precious regardless of the family’s situation.”
“I think little Valentina, right here. Her little face shows what a blessing that she is to this family, they are going to talk to the people of South Dakota and legislators about how important that bill is,” Noem said.
According to the report from Fox News, The Duffy family will also be joining Noem on stage during her State of the State address to discuss preserving life. Noem is set to deliver her first such address since the coronavirus pandemic struck South Dakota during the last legislative session.
