Violence Statement

South Dakota Right to Life (SDRTL) strongly opposes any use of violence as a means of stopping the violence that has killed nearly 60 million unborn children since 1973.

SDRTL has always been involved in peaceful, legal activities to protect human lives threatened by abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. We have always and continue to oppose any form of violence to fight the violence of abortion. SDRTL has a policy of forbidding violence (or illegal activity) by its staff, directors, officers and affiliated chapters. SDRTL’s purpose is to protect human life.

SDRTL will continue to work in educational, legislative and political activities to ensure the right to life for unborn children, people with disabilities and older people. SDRTL will continue to work for peaceful solutions to social problems. These solutions involve helping women and their children and do not involve violence against anyone.
