South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem was on CNN’s State of the Union last week with Dana Bash and she refused to weigh in on whether a 10-year-old pregnant girl should be forced to have her rapist’s baby. Bash explained the situation which recently occurred in Ohio and how the girl needed to go to Indiana to get an abortion since it would be illegal to do so in her home state. Noem did her best to obfuscate in order to not answer the question. She said, “what’s incredible is nobody’s talking about the pervert, horrible, and deranged individual that raped a 10-year-old.” Obviously the rapist should be held accountable and go to prison for a long time, but the issue of urgency to address is what to do about the pregnancy. By the sounds of it, Noem would force the 10-year-old girl to go through with the pregnancy and have the child, which is an absolutely terrifying position to make public policy.
