North Dakota to vote on amendment effectively banning abortions

 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 Senate’s 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.


“It is too intrusive and has too many unintended consequences,” Tammi Kromenaker of the Red River Women’s Clinic, the state’s sole facility offering abortions, said in a telephone interview with the Los Angeles Times. Other states, she said, “have defeated similar measures by a wide margin. I have faith and hope that the voters of North Dakota will vote the same way.”

    Thats the problem unwanted pregnancy. Bring another child without proper parents into this world is a plan for failure. Kids without both parents usually grow up to be criminals and not have a fair chance. I dont understand how they want to reduce population ban guns so that criminals cand do as they wish with us, no explanation for that except population control and sheeple keep pushing for gun ban's. Any idea how many men, women and children that would kill? Teenage pregnancy is the bigest problem with child abuse, and child murder So please stop the hypocracy. Whos going to care for the child in the next unwanted pregnancy? You? I doubt it!

    I am not a whining American Idol fan who thinks the vote was rigged.
