South Dakota Boys State Promotes Life

A volunteer recently returned from South Dakota Boys State in Aberdeen, sponsored by the American Legion, which was attended by about 400 juniors from across the state. During the event, the mock legislature (which included both a House and Senate and contained about 160 members) passed a bill nearly identical to Initiated Measure #11 by a substantial margin (2-1 in the Senate). This is an encouraging sign that our state’s brightest youth are being raised to respect life, and also bodes well for our fortunes this fall, where many of these same young men will be voting for the first time.
