Attorney General Marty Jackley reminds pharmacists it’s illegal to sell abortion pills

PIERRE, S.D.(HubCityRadio)- Governor Kristi Noem and Attorney General Marty Jackley wrote to South Dakota pharmacists to remind them of state law regarding the illegality of abortions except those necessary to save the life of the mother.

Jackley says its in response to recent rulings from the US Food and Drug Administration.

Jackley says he expects pharmacies will follow their directions.

Jackley says there are various forms of investigation and enforcement.

Following the US Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision in June 2022, states were once again allowed to make their own choices over abortion policy. South Dakota had a trigger law on the books, passed in 2005, that made abortion illegal except to save the life of a pregnant mother.
