South Dakota governor Kristi Noem signs executive order restricting abortion access

Kristi NoemSouth Dakota governor Kristi Noem issued an executive order to limit abortion access in her state following the historically-restrictive law signed in Texas last week.

The first-term Republican governor Tuesday signed a directive ordering the South Dakota Department of Health to create rules prohibiting the use of telemedicine in the process of terminating a pregnancy within the state and restricting when and how chemical abortion drugs are prescribed or provided.

The executive order bars physicians not licensed in South Dakota from prescribing abortion-inducing chemicals to someone, would make it illegal to deliver such products via courier, telemedicine or mail service, and prohibits abortion-inducing drugs from being dispensed or provided in schools or on state grounds.

The move comes comes days after Noem directed a top legal advisor in her office, Mark Miller, to vet South Dakota abortion law and find areas where it could be tightened to mimic or go beyond the Texas law that bans abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.
