    North Dakota's House of Representatives has passed a bill effectively outlawing abortion.

    The House voted 51-41 this afternoon to declare that a fertilized egg has all the rights of any person.

    That means a fetus could not be legally aborted without the procedure being considered murder.

    Minot Republican Dan Ruby has sponsored other bills banning abortion in previous legislative sessions - all of which failed.

    He also sponsored today's bill and says it is compatable with Roe versus Wade - the Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion.

    and it comports with Roe how???

    that bill isn't going real far when it's challenged, but it's not the first time ND tried to do that. They already got smacked for it.

    I'm pretty sure ND only has one abortion clinic in the entire state which is in Fargo since all the wackos there already drove them all out.

    SD only has one in the entire state too and theirs is in Sioux Falls for the same reason.

    Not surprised to see Republican ignorance continuing to shine through. Sad thing is, the only ones who suffer here are the women who can't get a abortion for various reasons and will have to go out of state.

    Though I do wonder if the fucktard lawmakers up there do realize that with the current law that there are so many mistakes with it.

    Whether or not someone agrees with Roe vs. Wade or not, we cannot have states trying to circumvent Constitutional decisions. Although I'm not big on abortion rights, I believe if abortion is to be overturned, it must be overturned nationally, not state by state.

    The idea that overturning Roe vs Wade would not end abortion but rather leave it up to the states is a bad idea. There are certain rights that Americans are guaranteed, and those should be guaranteed for all Americans, not just in certain states.

    Hopefully, this will be put down in the courts as no one can say for certain when life begins. We all have our own thoughts on that, but until there is agreement, setting an arbitrary time for that is impossible.

    Why shouldn't this state be allowed to outlaw abortion if that's what the people want?

    Why can't we have states trying to circumvent decisions that go against the Constitution? The Constitution does not allow the federal government to regulate abortion one way or another, therefore any law made either banning or allowing abortion is null and void. It is the duty of the state governments to make sure that the federal government does not usurp power it was never intended to have.

    Because if the Court decides it, it's not, by definition, against the constitution.

    That's a pretty basic concept.
