South Dakota Right to Life (SDRTL) works, in recognition of our human right to life in South Dakota, through education, legislation, activism, and service. We support measures to reduce and eliminate abortion, euthanasia, and other life-ending procedures.

SDRTL is the official state affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee and subscribes to its mission, objectives, and strategies.

SDRTL works with local Right to Life Chapters to further our Mission through pro-life advocacy in communities throughout the state. 

SDRTL, along with its chapters and pro-life allies, strives to educate all people with facts about abortion and other right to life issues. We encourage the work of pregnancy care centers and adoption agencies which offer real alternatives to abortion.


SDRTL promotes pro-life legislation at the state and federal level.  We inform South Dakota residents of elected officials’ voting records, and the views of political candidates, on right to life issues.

SDRTL is not affiliated with a particular political party or religious group.  We welcome all to join us in the defense and protection of human life.

We are committed to our Mission, and we know there is much more to be done.  We must work until every human being, from conception until natural death, is valued by society and protected by law.
