PIERRE, South Dakota (LifeSiteNews) — South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem has joined Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in vocally objecting to a proposed World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic treaty that critics worry could cede national sovereignty to the transnational organization during public health emergencies like COVID-19.

“South Dakota will continue to trust our people to exercise personal responsibility over their health,” Gov. Noem said in a statement to the Washington Free Beacon.

“That power is not President Biden’s to give away — the 10th Amendment reserves it for the states and for the people,” she added.

Noem wasn’t the only one to express concern about the proposed treaty.

A spokeswoman for Virginia Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin said that a list of Biden-backed amendments to the pandemic treaty were “incredibly concerning,” adding that “giving WHO sovereignty over U.S. health decisions” is “not something Governor Youngkin condones or supports.”

The statements come after Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday blasted the proposed treaty, asserting that “there is no way” Florida “will ever support” it.

“We in Florida, there is no way we will ever support this WHO thing … that’s not going to happen. No way,” DeSantis said during a press conference in Cape Coral, Florida, characterizing the treaty as a “pernicious” policy advanced by “elites.”

The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response. 

But it's not too late to do something about it. 

SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.

The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level. 

194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.

This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations. 

SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.

Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."

Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.

The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”

The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO. 

Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.

These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed. 

SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty

The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read. 

"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive. 

"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic. 

"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.

SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.

These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights. 

We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.

Sign the petition - speak up now!

READ: DeSantis rips World Health Organization power grab, says ‘no way’ Florida would support it

The strong statements come in response to the Biden administration’s proposed amendments to the WHO’s current International Health Regulations (IHR).

Women’s Rights Without Frontiers President Reggie Littlejohn has argued that if the amendments are implemented, they “will result in a significant erosion in U.S. sovereignty – in our ability to determine for ourselves whether something constitutes a health emergency and, if so, the best approach to that emergency. ”

It’s unclear whether the controversial treaty will go through.

On Wednesday, the WHO temporarily withdrew 12 of the 13 amendments that had been submitted by the Biden administration at the World Health Assembly (WHA) annual meeting.

The Liberty Counsel noted that the WHA meet-up will conclude on May 28, and warned that though temporarily scrapped, “the 12 amendments could resurface at a later date.”
