The N.D. Senate approved bills that would ban the destruction of human embryos and outlaw abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Your thoughts?

  1. Too restrictive
  2. Good idea
  3. No strong feelings either way

Human life used to be sacred and people did everything they could to survive. This is a step back in time but in the right direction IMO.

Pregnant women who are more than 20 weeks pregnant and decide to have an abortion will have to leave the state to have one. They will do exactly that.

You can't legislate morality.

The idiots in Bishmarck are idiots, so they don't know any better.

It is legal to gamble in North Dakota, casino style. I do not approve of casino style gambling, but the state passed a legislation to allow gambling to be legal.

I can't fight it. I don't want to, no need to. I just don't go to the casino. You will more than likely lose some money.

You can become addicted and then the state will help you. They created the problem and then want to solve it?

It is immoral,imo, but it is still done. The state has no problem legislating immorality and passing laws to make it legal, does it?

They impose their will on you, no matter what, and force you to accept something you consider immoral.

It is immoral to do that. Just my opinion.

You can't legislate morality, but immorality is ok.

During the Twentieth Century, governments managed to kill some 60 million people conducting all of their wars. All for greed and money.

Human life is no more sacred than a sacred cow.

WA, how many are dead because of cars? motorcycles? ATV's? They are dead. Your comment about the number of dead has to do with what? You oppose abortion, but don't have the guts to say so?

disgusted your argument comparing modes of transportation to machines that serve only one purpose and that is to kill, is a stupid argument. We need modes of transportation we do not need weapons in our homes to kill each other! These 1,400,000 dead we could have prevented. We have seat belt laws, we have air bags and other safety features in our cars to save lives. Why not stricter gun control laws?

2008 was the last year full statistics are available to. In 2008, approximately 1.21 million abortions took place in the U.S., down from an estimated 1.29 million in 2002, 1.31 million in 2000 and 1.36 million in 1996. From 1973 through 2008, nearly 50 million legal abortions have occurred in the U.S. (AGI). Wow huh! All without a single gun.

We don't NEED ATV's, motorcycles, etc. Funny how the kid chose the gun-free zone to kill those 26 people. he was trying to outkill a nut from Germany who killed nearly 80 people. When you get rid of bombs, fires, and the nuts who want to kill,etc, then gun control is something we can look at. Even Biden has said the bill proposed will do little to prevent mass killings.

It's not about abortion. It's about North Dakota government and Federal government have no right deciding what goes on with a women's body. They've made more hits towards women then they have to protect us. So unless I have the right to stand outside these legislations personal homes and decide which one gets a home vasectomy with kitchen sheers or a torturous hysterectomy with a spork, then they need to stay out of people's personal lives.

A woman has control over her body right up to the start of the act that creates life. Men don't like to hear that, do they.

In my mind, the choice "too restrictive" translates into "the ND legislature ought to focus more on salivating over petrodollars and less on playing doctor". The studies cited by the cosponsors have been roundly discredited, and the motive behind the bills (i.e. an eventual Supreme Court challenge) is pathetically transparent.

To voice my thoughts simply...the citizens that legislate for North Dakota have a long way to go before they entire the 21st century. Oh, and those that elect these legislators have a long way to go before they entire the 20th century.
