The Associated Press reports:
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.
My God. Kristi Noem (R) is now threatening to throw pharmacists in jail if they allow access to abortion pills for women or girls, including minors who are victims of rape or incest. https://t.co/fUNFH04IVh
