South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem called out Democrat leaders’ double standards on abortion and COVID over the weekend when she lobbed back a criticism about Republicans “embracing death.”

The Daily Wire reports Noem, a pro-life Republican, said Democrat lawmakers openly support the killing of unborn babies in abortions. Yet, they criticize Republican leaders for “embracing death” because they choose not to enforce strict coronavirus regulations, she said.

“I think it’s interesting that this side, this political party, the Democrats, who embrace getting abortion on demand, are accusing us of embracing death when we’re just allowing people to make personal choices and have personal responsibility over when they want to assemble, when they want to gather and spend time outdoors enjoying their way of life,” Noem said, according to Fox News.

Last week, Noem faced criticism for attending the 2021 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally as fears about the coronavirus resurface, according to the report.

Abortion is the biggest killer of human life in America and across the world, but Democrat Party leaders are working to expand abortion access. And they do this while enforcing strict coronavirus measures across the country for the purpose of saving lives. Democrat leaders could help save millions of babies’ lives if they joined Republicans and the vast majority of Americans in supporting protections for unborn babies from abortion.

Noem recently joined 240 pro-life female leaders in urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, the infamous abortion ruling that led to 63 million unborn babies’ abortion deaths.

“For my entire life, women have been told that pregnancy is a barrier to a successful career. This lie has led to millions of abortions, despite women like me and countless others proving that successful careers and motherhood are not mutually exclusive,” Noem said in July. “… Today, as a former state legislator congresswoman, and South Dakota’s first female governor, I stand in defiance of the lies perpetrated by the Roe decision.”

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, challenging Roe v. Wade in October.

A new AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll found that a strong majority of Americans believe states should be allowed to ban abortions after the first trimester. According to the poll, 65 percent said most or all second-trimester abortions should be illegal; the number increased to 80 percent in the third trimester.

Gallup polls also consistently find that a majority of Americans want all or most abortions to be illegal.
