North Dakota didnt set out to become the abortion debate's new epicenter.
It happened by accident, after a legislative caucus that once vetted abortion bills languished, leaving lawmakers to propose a flurry of measuressome cribbed from Wikipediawithout roadblocks.
Lawmakers on Friday took a step toward outlawing abortion altogether in the state by passing a so-called personhood resolution that says a fertilized egg has the same right to life as a person. The Houses approval sends the matter to voters, who will decide whether to add the wording to the states constitution in November 2014.
Its one of several anti-abortion measures to pass the Legislature. Most are awaiting the signature of Republican Gov. Jack Dalrymple, who hasnt yet indicated whether he supports the laws. Even if he were to veto them, some could have the support for the Legislature to override him.

And it's true that the DNA in a person´s appendix, eye, lung or zygote is all the same; but any scientist who cannot tell the difference between an appendix cell and a zygote is an incompetent or a fraud.
The zygote´s DNA is sometimes compared to a blueprint, but it is far more than a blueprint. If you take a blueprint plant it, and nourish it, it will never grow, nor be anything more than a blueprint. But the zygote, implanted and nourished in its proper environment, grows and develops into an embryo, a fetus, a neonate, a toddler, an adolescent: all these ---zygote, embryo, fetus, toddler, and adolescent ---being stages in a human being´s life.
Every person around you as once a zygote. That´s what you were on Day One of your life.
The whole debate makes me wonder whatever happened to sex ed? A lot of people apparently still don´t know where babies come from.
Take a moment to THANK GOVERNOR DALRYMPLE for signing this important legislation.....
Thanks. Did it.
