MarthaRaddatz MarthaRaddatz The people who watch your network are too stupid to know any better than to believe your lies!

MarthaRaddatz Gov. Norm can’t have it both ways with women. She’s literally pushing them to back alley abortions, but “don’t worry, your doctors are the ones we’re after”. South Dakota sucks. Call the midwife! MarthaRaddatz This is Noem in 2018. Botox much? MarthaRaddatz To interpret: So women you're good! However, doctors will probably get fined and probably lose their license, so women you're not really good because you won't have access to those medications.

MarthaRaddatz what a horror she is MarthaRaddatz SD Gov Noem doesn’t stand up for women, Native Americans, and/or the natural resources in South Dakota.

SD Gov. Noem Pledges to Institute State's Telemedicine Abortion Ban

SD Gov. Noem Pledges to Institute State's Telemedicine Abortion BanGovernor Kristi Noem (R-SD) said Sunday on CBS's 'Face the Nation' that she will ban telemedicine appointments with abortion providers who prescribe pills online on the heels of the Supreme Court's decision overturning Roe v. Wade. | Clips Well done, Governor. Liberals need to settle down and enjoy the $5 gas, high inflation, and increase crime they gave us. Any kind of gun laws that protect the public in any way: Bad, and government overreach. Mandating women have children no matter what: good Christian. LOLWTF

MarthaRaddatz Sometimes, ectopic pregnancies have a heartbeat detected by sonogram in the fallopian tube. So, a doctor now has to wait until the heartbeat is undetectable (as no ectopic pregnancy is viable, it’s just a manner of time). This delay in treating the woman could kill her. MarthaRaddatz This decision by SCOTUS is very unpopular in the polls. But your report on tv pushed a falsehood that it's popularity was 50/50. I hate bullshit.unsubbed. Done with ABC news.

MarthaRaddatz Sounds like someone had an abortion. MarthaRaddatz If your state tries to arrest any of your female citizens (or anyone who assists them) for having an abortion in a state where it is legal, those legal states will reciprocate and issue an arrest warrant for any judge, prosecutor, or LEO involved in the female's arrest.

MarthaRaddatz I was travelling in Pakistan in a bus when a bearded bugger(few of them going for a Islamic gathering)who was in a sleepy mood in front reclined his seat and hit my knees. I politely asked him to reconsider. Was told that since bus manufacturer has this feature, it was his Right. MarthaRaddatz Common sense isn't very common anymore. 😢

MarthaRaddatz What if the doctor who knowingly violates the law is a Woman? 🤔 MarthaRaddatz It's the same stick that comes with a carrot that was much talked about 30 years ago. MarthaRaddatz Why do yall give these people a platform? MarthaRaddatz My question is this: Why would doctors want to work in South Dakota?

Do some critical thinking woman. This will cause suffering, death and poverty. govkristinoem now you're going to start making sure women have the resources they need. 🙄 If it was that important, it would've been done already.

South Dakota's measure , signed into law in 2005, prohibits the performance of abortions, except to save the life of the mother, and bans anyone from prescribing a woman drugs that induce an abortion. 25, 2002. The president has said he’s going to use the Justice Department to intervene here if there’s an attempt to stop women from receiving these pills. John Raoux/AP, FILE South Dakota Gov."

Kristi Noem said Sunday that women shouldn't be prosecuted for seeking abortions following the Supreme Court's ruling last week , which allowed state-level abortion bans in South Dakota and elsewhere to take effect. NOEM: –method for an abortion. South Dakota Gov. Noem, a Republican, celebrated the high court's finding that there is no constitutional guarantee to abortion access, but she told "This Week" co-anchor Martha Raddatz, "I don't believe women should ever be prosecuted. I don't believe that mothers in this situation [should] ever be prosecuted. This is a federally approved drug. Now doctors who knowingly violate the law, they should be prosecuted. Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement Friday in response to the Supreme Court's ruling that states may not ban Mifepristone"based on disagreement with the FDA's expert judgment about its safety and efficacy." South Dakota was one multiple states that had in place a so-called "trigger law," which immediately banned abortions once the Supreme Court announced its ruling, according to the research and policy group Guttmacher Institute. That’s what states do– BRENNAN: Will you stop- if it’s sent in the mail will you intercede and stop it from being received? NOEM: –and, you know there’s- it’s certain rights that are protected- there are certain protections that are guarded under the Constitution of the United States. Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement Friday in response to the Supreme Court's ruling that states may not ban Mifepristone"based on disagreement with the FDA's expert judgment about its safety and efficacy.

Following the court's decision, all abortions in the state became illegal "unless there is appropriate and reasonable medical judgment that performance of an abortion is necessary to preserve the life of the pregnant female." The law makes performing an abortion -- either through a procedure or via medicine -- a felony. What the Supreme Court said was that the Constitution does not give a woman the right to have an abortion."There are certain protections that are guarded under the Constitution of the United States. However, Noem said Sunday, "I don't believe there should be any punishment for women, ever, that are in a crisis situation or have an unplanned pregnancy. And South Dakota has been strong on that argument. BRENNAN: Exactly and that’s– NOEM: –and in South Dakota we’ve already had a bill passed that set on telemedicine abortions, that we don’t believe it should be available, because it is a dangerous situation for those individuals without being medically supervised by a physician." She called the new court ruling "wonderful news in the defense of life. Noem suggested she would not go after corporations such as Walmort or Amazon that have workers in her state and have pledged to reimburse employees who get abortions elsewhere." In addition to spotlighting abortion pills, the court's decision also raised questions about whether states that ban abortion can penalize companies that have announced they will cover expenses for employees who travel across state lines to obtain an abortion.

Every life is precious." "We want to help support these mothers," she continued. "I think we can do better in this country making sure that we're walking alongside them in these situations." She also said she does not anticipate South Dakota will take up proposals that incentivize residents to report women suspected of seeking or aiding in abortions, like a law passed in Texas." Raddatz cited data from the nonpartisan social policy think tank Commonwealth Fund that "the 14 states that have the most restrictive abortion laws, including South Dakota, invest the least in policies and programs for women and children." "So what do you mean when you say these mothers will never be alone?" she asked, challenging Noem. "That's never been the conversation in South Dakota, and I don't anticipate that we will ever do that.

"I would say that the facts on the ground are that South Dakota's doing a lot to coordinate with nonprofits, with churches, and then also the state in a new way by launching this website," Noem answered, referring to a with information about resources for pregnant women and new mothers."We will make sure that mothers have the resources, protection and medical care that they need, and we're being aggressive on that. South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem speaks in Orlando, Fla., Feb. 25, 2002.

John Raoux/AP, FILE The Supreme Court handed down its decision reversing Roe on Friday, ruling that there was not a constitutional guarantee to abortion access and that abortions could be regulated, or banned, by each state individually. Raddatz noted in 2006 and in 2008 that South Dakota voters rejected initiatives for complete bans on abortion. She asked Noem if the governor would "be willing to let the voters of the state decide the issue again?" Noem said voters decide the issue of abortion "every single year when we come to legislative sessions." "They vote for their representatives to come to sessions," she said. President Joe Biden, responding to the Roe reversal, said Friday that his administration would work to protect certain medications that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration, "like contraception, which is essential for preventative healthcare [and] mifepristone, which the FDA approved 20 years ago to safely end early pregnancies and is commonly used to treat miscarriages.

" When Raddatz pushed Noem on her stance on abortions via medication, using the "so-called abortion pill," Noem said she didn't believe telemedicine abortions were safe. “I don’t believe that telemedicine abortions are safe for individuals, for women to conduct at home, many times they’re doing it unsupervised. It’s a medical procedure, and so I do believe that there should be a physician supervision in place when that is being conducted by individual,” Noem said. Medication abortions are considered safe, according to the nonprofit organization Kaiser Family Foundation , “with a 0.4% risk of major complications, and an associated mortality rate of less than 0.

001 percent (0.00064%).” She also said she thinks there will be continued discussion among local lawmakers about the legality of constituents who travel across state borders to get an abortion elsewhere. "That, certainly, isn't addressed in our statute today and so I think that there'll be a debate about [it], but also we're having lots of debates in South Dakota," she said. Related Topics .
