Read it here at the Argus Leader.
Republican state Rep. Casey Murschel of Sioux Falls has been named to take over as executive director of the National Abortion Rights Action League Pro-Choice South Dakota, effective Tuesday.
Murschel, who succeeds Thelma Underberg in the role, is serving her third term in the Legislature. She also served on the Sioux Falls City Council.
Murschel said her group will be a resource for people and political candidates on issues and will actively oppose an abortion ban that's on South Dakota's Nov. 7 general election ballot.
"As many have said, the law simply goes too far," she said in a release. "This level of government intrusion in personal and private matters is not the answer."
