Skip to comments.North Dakota to vote on amendment effectively banning abortions
Posted on 03/22/2013 3:50:51 PM PDT by Viennacon
North Dakota lawmakers on Friday approved a state referendum for this fall on a constitutional amendment that, if passed, would effectively block abortion by holding that life begins at conception.
In a 57-35 vote, the House followed the Senates action and approved the referendum that now goes before the voters on the November ballot. Groups backing abortion rights said they will fight the referendum and, if needed, in the courts as well. The action is the latest in a series of moves by North Dakota lawmakers to limit and, in some cases, even eliminate abortions. Lawmakers have passed bills that would ban abortions six weeks after conception or after a fetal heartbeat is detected. A second measure would ban abortions because of genetic defects. Both bills now head to the governor, who has yet to say what he will do.

Kinda makes the story of Solomon relevant. It's called Wisdom!!
Do you think that our soon to be entirely corrupt and sub intelligent sub-preening court will actually allow this?
Hope springs eternal.
I was reading somewhere (and people can correct me if I’m wrong) that although roe v wade made abortion legal, it also left it open to possible future legislation as the court said that science had not yet determined at what point a fetus became “human.” With the advancements in science since the 70s, I don’t know how anyone argue that life doesn’t begin at conception ( I actually I don’t understand how anyone could argue that in 70s either). You don’t even have to make this a religious argument... Pro-lifers are the ones with SCIENCE (the exact thing the left is always harping on about) on their side.
Are the “new” chromosonesequence present at conception? If so, it is the whole of the new person.
Shouldn’t abortion be a state’s choice? IMO it is and the SC should say so.
One guess is that personhood will be defined as the moment one can live without an umbilical core.
I hadn't realized that they forgot when a fetus "became human". I was born in '52 and back then they knew that when a human sperm met a human egg it would result in a human baby being implanted in the uterus.
A good example of how they obfuscate things with words like "personhood" to try to ignore that the real issue is "life" and the murder of that life.
I’m sorry, but I can’t see any advantage to claiming that science is on our side. Science has become a discredited ideology that just produces liberals and other traitors.
I don’t look to science or scientists for my truth, sorry. Frankly, I think we can do better without them.
