Your texts will help us find new supporters and mobilize your community to advocate for Planned Parenthood’s patients, health care, and community.

Here's what you can do.
Sioux Falls, SD— Today, Governor Noem signed a bill into law that further restricts abortion access in South Dakota. HB1318 limits medication abortion and includes language that is currently under injunction by the courts. Even after signing, the bill will not go into effect until the court case is resolved.
Sioux Falls, SD— As the 2022 legislative session ends, legislators again attacked safe legal abortions with an onslaught of proposed bills, including a Texas-style abortion ban that did not make it through the legislative process.
Self-care is what keeps activists going when the going gets tough. It is the all-encompassing term for anything and everything that revitalizes us for the fight that lays ahead.

Sioux Falls, SD— Today, South Dakota Governor Noem announced in her 2022 State of the State Speech that she will be pursuing a 6 week abortion ban this legislative session, banning abortion before most people even know that they are pregnant.
The 2022 Legislative Session begins today, and we are already fighting for South Dakotans’ essential rights. Your advocacy in the coming months is key to protecting fundamental rights in our state.
Here are some of the attacks we expect to see this year from Governor Noem and hostile politicians.
