South Dakota Gov. Noem threatens charges for abortion pills

Source: Associated Press

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, along with the state’s Republican attorney general, said Tuesday the state will prosecute pharmacists who dispense abortion-inducing pills following a recent Food and Drug Administration rule change that broadens access to the pills.

The Republican governor and South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley released a letter to South Dakota pharmacists saying they are “subject to felony prosecution” if they procure or dispense abortion-inducing drugs. The state bans all abortions except to save the life of the pregnant person.

“South Dakota will continue to enforce all laws including those that respect and protect the lives of the unborn,” Noem and Jackley said in the letter.

The FDA earlier this month formally updated labeling for abortion pills to allow many more retail pharmacies to dispense them, so long as they complete a certification process.

1. Pure grandstanding. Pharmacy chains have already said they will not sell abortion pills in states

that ban abortion.

13. I wonder if this is akin to sales bans of plants to states and territories

that are deemed in conflict with state and territorial agriculture policies.

Clearly abortion pill bans aren't exactly the same thing, but I wonder if they may, in a legal sense, broadly overlap in terms of state powers and thereby lend themselves as argumentation that states have the power to ban movement of a product into their territory.

BTW I AM NOT IN FAVOR OF BANNING PHARMACEUTICALS THAT PREVENT IMPLANTATION.

3. Wow. Lots of meds can "produce abortions" or are teratogenic if preganant.

I assume she is proposing denying legal medications to every South Dakotan, or is she just singling out females of child bearing age? Pretty sure that is not constitutional. Perhaps resign and classify woman as merely property and not human beings in South Dakota?

5. I'm pretty sure men will provide their mistresses the pills tho....

Illegal drug smuggling will have top notch profits. Illegal abortionists will be plenty and countless women and babies will die. Same shit that happened over 50 years ago but in two-fold. Pro-life people are pro-death.

20. Ah, but we must not forget

That an almost invisible sperm wiggled it's way into the egg cytoplasm and there it is sanctified as life by most invisible gods

Yet despite an invisible god sanctifying this magical moment, only 27% if these eggs will have survived 6 weeks later. That's right 73% of them die before 6 weeks and another 10% will die after that. Thank god.

See all HUMAN life is sanctified by invisible gods. We must allow those eggs invaded by sperms to do their magical mystery things despite how it interferes with free will, bodily autonomy or reality because god.

12. Doctors can prescribe for off-label uses.

Abortion Pills, Once a Workaround, Are Now a Target

Doctors can prescribe for off-label uses.

Off-label prescribing is when a physician gives you a drug that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved to treat a condition different than your condition. This practice is legal and common. In fact, one in five prescriptions written today are for off-label use.

Maybe like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine?

Just be sure to mention side effects.

“South Dakota will continue to enforce all laws including those that respect and protect the lives of the unborn,” Noem and Jackley said in the letter.

23. Hypocrisy - thy name is Republican

Since not ALL "Pills" are designed to cause abortion, but some pills for other uses created with no intent to cause abortion MIGHT cause abortion:

If Republican anti-abortionist Politicians are so filled with dread that "pills for abortions" in the mail or corner drugstore or doctor's Rx can be used to murder babies ( they don't worry about the mothers) should be made illegal, shouldn't they feel bullets and guns should be illegal, too? Dunno? Can bullets and guns be used to kill babies, women and/or men, too? Inquiring minds want to know!

Maybe make buying guns and ammo thru the mail, across state lines, in malls, etc. illegal, also?

The National and States Congressional Taliban Republicans feel it's ok to have a right to potentially kill a human being with a gun so long as they have been born (women's rights are currently pending - tentatively subject to revocation!). Seems men have a "right" to purchase" something that MIGHT kill, but women can't! Oh wait. Women can purchase guns and ammo...so far, but not pretty much ANY pill the Taliban thinks MIGHT cause an abortion - just in case! (because concern for life!) should be outlawed.

Makes senese in a twisted, Republican/Fox/NRA/religious way, doesn't it"

24. It's unenforceable

since there is no way she can get records from out of state doctors who prescribe them and I doubt the USPS is going to rat out any of the recipients, not even if they recognize a return address on the package. In addition, pharmacies in SD will stock the drug because it has uses other than pregnancy termination. So the grandstanding saloppe is SOL right from the beginning.

The most they can hope for is some discarded man whining to the cops that the ex undid the holy work of his golden rod, and that's not evidence, it's complaining.

Into the clink you go!

Preganancy tests should come with a DNA indicator too, so that new mom-to-be can bring suit against the offending sperm shooter.

And since there is a faction of the hard right that believes birth control induces abortion, expect “or devices” to be added to this law before Miss East Carolina gets it, and the end result will be a contraception ban in South Dakota.
