More Lies–South Dakotans Need to Hear the TRUTH!

The pro-abortionists are using every last effort to side step the real issue of Measure 11: to end abortion as birth control.  They are resorting to false advertising, voter fraud and exploitation of medical groups. 

They will never argue that abortion SHOULD

continue as birth control,

because they know they will lose that argument. 

Instead, they choose highly rare and technical issues,

misrepresent the facts about those issue, and hope to confuse voters.


Lie:  A TV ad from a pro-abortion activist group, depicts a woman telling her story about her pregnancy with twins. It implies that a procedure resulting in the death of a twin that has “Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome” is illegal under Measure 11.


Truth: The normal standard of Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome is covered under Measure 11 (Sec. 2, Measure 11).  A complaint was filed and those ads have since been removed from the airwaves.


Lie:  Measure 11 forces South Dakota doctors to turn over patients’ private medical records to the government.


Truth: This is completely false. HIPPA Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act laws prevent any doctor or medical personnel from disclosing any medical information to anyone other than their patient. Those laws do not change under Measure 11.


Lie:  The Government will interfere with private, medical decisions. 


Truth: Measure 11 is designed to end abortion as birth control. Abortions done for medical reasons are left up to the physician’s own judgment.


Lie:  South Dakota Medical Association and Sanford Health do not support Measure 11. 


Truth: Sanford and the South Dakota Medical Association (SDMA) have verified that they are NEURTRAL on this issue, and are encouraging people to vote according to their own morals.  These groups have been exploited by the pro-abortionists without permission. Both Sanford and the SDMA have asked “Healthy Families” to cease and desist associating their names with their political agenda.


Sanford has since written a letter to Yes on 11, stating they now better understand the measure and they will make Vote Yes’ clarification available to their doctors. Measure 11 does have support from hundreds of South Dakota doctors, and many medical groups from across the nation. Visit website to see a list of groups representing more than 150 million supporters. Avera Hospital does support Measure 11, along with both Catholic Bishops in the state.


Lie:  “All you need is an address and you can vote, even if you go back home the next day.” 


Truth: Campaign for “Healthy Families” caught their spokesman in another lie, as they admitted (on tape) that their campaign spokesman will be voting here and returning to California right after the election. The spokesman lied when he signed the voter registration stating: “I actually live at and have no present intention of leaving the above address.”  Campaign staff encouraged another non-resident to do the same. This evidence has been submitted to States Attorney General Larry Long, for investigation.


Lie:  Campaign for “Healthy Families” represents and cares about South Dakotans.  


Truth: An astounding 94% of campaign funds were received from out-of-state pro-abortion industries, such as Planned Parenthood.  Groups such as Planned Parenthood, and not South Dakotans, are financing campaigns here in our state, hiding behind the notion that they are protecting the interests of South Dakotans.
