For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. Psalm 193:13
HB1053 is a good pro-life bill that will prohibit pregnant and breastfeeding mothers from being able to secure a certificate for medical marijuana use. Our goal is a healthy baby and a healthy mother. Read the bill here.
HB1053 could be heard in the House Health and Human Services Committee the week of January 17.
Studies show that marijuana use during pregnancy increases the risk of low birth weight, stillbirth, and premature birth. The chemicals in marijuana can lead to learning problems, difficulty focusing, and behavioral problems. These chemicals can also pass into breast milk and can affect the infant’s neurobehavioral development.
Contact your two state representatives and urge them to protect moms and babies by voting YES on HB1053. If you do not know who your two representatives are, click here. If you are a member of CWA of South Dakota, be sure to let them know.
Heavenly Father, we ask for Your watch-care over our moms and babies. Thank you for being the giver, sustainer, and protector of life.
