Pro-Life, Pro-Choice advocates share equally impassioned but opposite reactions to Roe decision

RAPID CITY, S.D. — Organizations on both sides of the abortion debate shared their equally impassioned but opposite reactions.

Pro-lifers, including S.D. Right to Life, lauded the Supreme Court’s decision.

Dale Bartscher, the executive director at S.D. Right to Life, says, “South Dakota will finally be able to ensure that the life of every unborn child in our state is protected. Quite frankly, if I had confetti, I’d be tossing it high.”

On the other hand, pro-choice advocates say it’s a devastating outcome.

Planned Parenthood North Central States held a media availability Friday, saying they “weren’t going anywhere.”

“Today is an absolutely horrible, devastating day; I don’t think there are words to describe what a shattering moment this is for women in our country,” says Sarah Stoesz, the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood North Central States.
