More than 40 National Organizations Representing 150 Million Strongly Support Measure 11

The Argus Leader recently did a feature story on how the South Dakota Medical Association does not support the abortion ban. Now that they are trying to develop credibility on who has the most effective endorsements, it’s important to compare endorsements of each campaign and let the people decide who is the most credible.  To set the record clear, the SDMA did not poll doctors in South Dakota to ask them the question of whether they agree that the campaign would interfere with their doctor/patient relationship, or medical judgment to treat the health and life of a mother and her child.   The measure clearly protects both  the doctor, mother and her unborn children.   The SDMA opinion reflects only that the majority of members of the SDMA are pro-abortion.   The SDMA statement does not include the opinions of the majority of doctors in South Dakota.


So let’s compare the endorsement debate.   The campaign has the endorsement of over 40 national organizations representing approximately 150 million people.   An important aspect of these endorsements is the endorsement of Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the original founder of NAARL (National Abortion Rights Action League).  He said their original board schemed how they would transport abortion across the land.  They had to develop a way to deny what they knew to be true–that abortion destroys the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being.  He has done over 75,000 abortions and stated that working to legalize abortion was the worst decision in his life, and the worst decision in America’s history.  Norma McCorvey, Roe in Roe v. Wade endorses the campaign.  Sandra Cano, Doe in Doe v Bolton, the follow up case to Roe that legalized abortion through all nine months for any reason, strongly endorses the campaign.  And the last doctor to perform abortions in South Dakota, Patti Gebink, is now the treasurer of the campaign.  She is adamant that what she did was wrong, and is now committed to saving baby’s lives.  So the people most responsible for bringing abortion to America and making it legal are now the strongest proponents to saving the unborn and protecting women.  If we want to listen to the experts, let’s listen to the people who know most about the devastating effects of abortion on women and on our country.  


The biggest government interference in our nation’s history was when 7 unelected judges, dismantled the laws of all 50 states with no vote of the people, no vote of any legislature, or the U.S. House or Senate.  They told every state they will now become states where the unborn are not considered human beings.  Not since the Dred Scott decision of 1857 where the Supreme Court said black people are nothing more than property to be bought and sold, has our nation experienced such reprehensible effects.  The arguments were the same.  This is a freedom of choice issue.


Thomas Jefferson said, “The first duty of government is to protect innocent human life.”  Abraham Lincoln said, “Nobody should have the freedom to choose to do what’s morally wrong.”  This issue will define America and the values we hold as a nation.  It represents the very foundation of our democracy.  We believe all men are born FREE and EQUAL.  They are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable (God-given) rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”  If the value of human life is only subjective, based on whether one is wanted, needed, loved or convenient, all of our lives are in the balance.  


As our nation faces the greatest economic crisis in this century, who will be next?   Could it be the aged, the disabled or handicapped?  Read the names of the organizations that have endorsed the campaign on the website and compare that to the list of the few pro-abortion board members of the SDMA and ask yourselves, whose side are you on?  There is only one choice in the voting booth.  It’s literally life or death.   How we vote can determine the very future of our Republic and the values we will stand for as a nation.
