South Dakota Governor Endorses Pro-Abortion Candidates

South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard just endorsed two pro-abortion state Senators.




Please review the info below and then call Governor Daugaard’s office at (605) 773-3212.  Tell him to STOP endorsing pro-abortion politicians!


It’s highly unusual for a Republican Governor to get involved in Republican Primary Elections, supporting one Republican over another.  The South Dakota Republican Party just condemned that kind of action by any party official.


But that hasn’t stopped Daugaard from choosing Republican candidates who oppose the Right to Life!


Just yesterday the Rapid City Journal reported that the Governor has endorsed Senator Tom Nelson (R-Lead) and Senator Deb Peters (R-Sioux Falls).  Both of them have voted for abortion!


Nelson and Peters both supported allowing ObamaCare health plans to fund abortions (HB 1185 – Journal of the SD Senate, 2/28/12).


And both Nelson and Peters voted against simple informed consent laws which place the same requirements on abortions as are often placed on minor surgeries (HB 1217 – Journal of the SD Senate, 3/2/11).


(You can check the record for yourself –


Now the Governor is threatening to endorse more candidates.


Please call Governor Daugaard’s office and ask him to STOP supporting pro-abortion politicians!

The number is (605) 773-3212.

Thank you, in advance, for taking action to protect the Right to Life.




Dear Governor Daugaard,


I’m appalled to learn that you have endorsed not one but TWO pro-abortion state Senators who are seeking re-election.

No matter what else they may support, how could it be right to help Senators Tom Nelson and Deb Peters win re-election so they can go right on voting to kill babies?


You claimed to be a 100% pro-life candidate when you were elected in 2010.  Why are you now supporting politicians who are working against the Right to Life in South Dakota?


Please reverse your position and STOP supporting pro-abortion politicians!
