Troubling to say the least. The North Dakota House passed a resolution yesterday 51-41 effectively banning abortion. They declared a fertilized egg has all the same rights as a human.
Republican Dan Ruby has sponsored other bills banning abortion in previous legislative sessions – all of which failed.
“This is the exact language that’s required by Roe vs. Wade. It stipulated that before a challenge can be made, we have to identify when life begins, and that’s what this does,” he said.
If the sole purpose of a bill like this is to challenge Roe vs. Wade at the SJC level, then you have no business being a legislator. If a women has a miscarriage will she be tried for manslaughter? I don’t understand how anyone in their desire to ban abortion could ignore the larger issue of women’s health rights.
