Anticipation is high as the Supreme Court is set to hear the most important abortion case in decades. Meanwhile, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is looking to set the record straight about the pro-life movement. During a press conference Monday, the Republican expressed she’s hopeful the conservative-majority court will overturn Roe v. Wade.
“I’m so excited that I’ll be around to finally watch that be torn out of our history books and that now we will now be a nation proud of our mothers, proud of our babies and proud of our future,” she expressed.
The case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization centers around a 2018 Mississippi law, which aims to ban most abortions after 15-weeks. The bill was blocked by two federal courts that claimed it violated Roe v. Wade. However, Mississippi’s top prosecutor challenged this by claiming Roe v. Wade should be overturned and leave abortion laws up to the states.
Meanwhile, Noem stressed action like this is what makes a difference while slamming the left’s narratives about pro-life Americans.
“I think those who are pro choice try to dehumanize they try to make an argument that we don’t care about women, that we don’t care about these babies and that’s just a false narrative that we have to push aggressively back against,” she stated.
Noem warned the left’s attempts to depict motherhood as an inconvenience is anti-woman.
“There are strong women out there leading that are parents, that are mothers and that false narrative that the left is trying to sell to this country is extremely wrong,” said the South Dakota governor. “And it’s a lie that has crippled so much of our potential for success and blessings in the United States of America.”
Noem said she is hopeful the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade for good and stressed this will be a huge win for women. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments on Wednesday.
