Together we can make a difference.

Who We Are

Who We Are

Sioux Falls Area Right to Life is a local chapter of South Dakota Right to Life. Our volunteer organization is passionate about the sanctity of human life, promoting and protecting, and "Defending human Life from conception to natural death". Visit the State Right to Life website Here.

Our Mission

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote a culture of life by protecting and advocating for the unborn and cherishing all life.

Our Vision

Our Vision

Our vision is to empower others and ourselves through education, awareness and advocacy.


Since placing our first billboards in March of 2019 Sioux Falls Area Right to Life has placed 28 billboards which have created over 20 million positive Pro Life impressions in and around Sioux Falls. Our hope is that through these inspirational messages the sanctity of Life is lifted up and others are educated that life does in fact begin before birth.

The FIRST placement of a Permanent Pro-Life Billboard was first located on a cold day in January, 2020 and completed Dec. 23rd, 2021. With the help of many dedicated volunteers, including donated equipment and poles, and in cooperation with local and state governments, our vision for a permanent message was realized. We offer special thanks to the couple who donated the land and site along I-29 north of Dell Rapids, SD.

Do you want to help? We are now looking for 3 more spots of commercial land east, west and south of Sioux Falls. Donations towards the next three signs are very welcome. Please let us know if you or your organization would like to support these efforts. You can do so for as little as $250 when you partner in this community outreach and education initiative. Together, let's make this year one for LIFE!

Life Chain 2023 image
For the past several years the Sioux Falls Area Right to Life elected to take on the role of organizing the annual Life Chain event here in Sioux Falls. We were happy and excited to accept the invitation to do so from the previous Life Chain organizers.  This last year 750 people lined 41st Street from Kiwanis Ave to Sertoma Ave in peaceful prayer to show their support for the end of abortion.

Stand with tens of thousands of pro-life individuals throughout the USA and Canada, in honor of the millions of babies whose lives have been lost to abortion. Pray for people in crisis pregnancy situations, for women who have been hurt by abortion and for our nation.

Life Chain is held yearly on the first Sunday in October.
When: Sunday, October 6th 2:00 - 3:00 PM
Where: West 41st St. (North Sidewalk)
Between S Sertoma Ave. and S Holly Ave.

Join us at our booth at Life Light on Sunday, September 1st, over Labor Day weekend from Noon-10 pm.

  • ADOPT A BLOCK! Kindly let us know the number in your group by Sept. 30, so a specific block on the route can be reserved. We can then direct you to a check-in station near that location to pick up your signs.

Honoring the Unborn imageHonoring the Unborn imageHonoring the Unborn image
The pink and blue crosses represent the number of baby girls and boys whose lives were lost to abortion in SD, according to the latest number by the SD Dept. of Health (2022, published in June, 2023).There were 137 abortions performed in South Dakota in 2022, down from 192 abortions in the previous year. Praise God that because of the Dobbs decision on June 24, 2022, abortions in SD are only legal to save the life of the mother. Be in prayer for the mothers and fathers who made the unwise decision to end their child’s life. Also, pray that our state remains a pro-life sanctuary for the unborn. Please Decline to Sign the petition that would amend our state constitution and legalize abortion up to birth (and vote No in Nov., 2024.)

Regular Meetings Every 1st Monday of the Month at 6:30 p.m. (4301 W. 57st St. Sioux Falls)

The truth about RU-486 aka "The Pill"

Now legal for use in our country, RU-486 (mifepristone) kills an unborn baby 5-7 weeks old by blocking food and oxygen so that the baby eventually starves or suffocates to death.

This video is causing quite a stir. While the video creates a buzz .... Planned Parenthood doesn't know how to respond.

That's because the video includes footage of a scene Planned Parenthood does NOT want you to see: testimony from its own representative asserting the right to kill a baby who survives a botched abortion.

To watch the video, click the video or Click Here

Keep the pressure on and expose Planned Parenthood's agenda by sharing this video with EVERYONE you know.
