The legislators are calling on Gov. Kristi Noem to hold accountable anyone who transports a South Dakota minor to Minnesota to receive gender mutilation services.
A group of 24 Minnesota legislators are calling on Gov. Kristi Noem to impose penalties “against anyone participating materially in luring or transporting South Dakota minors” to Minnesota for “gender-affirming health care.”
“It is our belief that a line now needs to be drawn here, at this exact point in our history as a nation,” they write. “Criminal penalties for kidnapping and child mutilation are in order and well-justified.”
