if not allowing people to kill the unborn means it might 'hurt' our image, so what ? if image means more than the life of a child, we're in big trouble.

we look like a third world country where women don't count and religious zealots rule. Kind of like Iran, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan, because that is exactly what we are. Women make a whopping $.62 of the dollar men make. The people in charge of our government sneer at women when they try to get involved. They are lobbied by big oil, with little or no regard for what happens to our enviroment and the poor to middle class in our state. This attitude is held by nearly all the men in state government.

if the folks who are so fervently anti-choice cared even half as much for the born as for the fetus we would be better off.

These new laws go to far!!That's what happens when these guys care more about getting their name in the history books, instead of doing their jobs!We have many,many things that need the attention of our ELECTED officials, passing dozens of new laws is not one of them!! People please call them all and give them a piece of your mind.

I think the Governor did this to shoot North Dakota into the national news. Measure 8 in California trumped him. Bad move. Proves that news agencies care more about gay rights than women's rights.

socialisms**** has it right.

Now to read what lefties REALLY think, about both SCOTUS/Prop. 8 and ND's abortion bills, go to twitchy . com. Fair warning: definitely NOT G-rated language.

Women, you'd better conceive every egg you produce and guys, cut that out.

I see meddlesome big government Republicons.

The legislature is directed to set money aside to defend the unconstitutional move by the Republicans. But, it is not their money so who cares. Same as with joining the Health care lawsuit. well, no income tax breaks for ND this year or next. Give it to the lawyers.. Good move Republicans.

Now that this law has passed, the next one that is needed that every male who applies for a prescription for ED medication needs to be seen every week for a year by a psychiatrist before their primary care doctor can issue the prescription. What's good the goose is good for the gander.

This is going to kill grown women but the GOP doesn't care about that. They care more about a non-viable fetus. Keys, wait till this gets to the SCOTUS and watch how the new will be all over it. The whole world will be watching us get female dog slapped right back to this abomination of a state.

So let me get this straight, you were all for the "choice" being taken out of the equation when it came to smoking in bars, you are all about choice being removed when it comes to gun control. But for some reason, now you WANT choice when it comes to this? As was stated before, what is good for the goose...

I'm pro-choice. I choose not to get an abortion. But that's the "wrong" choice, to certain people.

Glad I didn't vote for the knuckle-dragging Neanderthal.

Jack doesn't know Jack.

He has hurt his image more than he has North Dakota's.

The damage is done.

If a woman wants an abortion, it is entirely her business, not the state's. There should be no laws regarding abortion.

You can't legislate morality.

This year's crop of legislators is a group to loathe.

"You can't legislate morality."

So if somebody stealing my pumpkins has been determined by the legislature to be a crime, and can be prosecuted as such, they have legislated morality. "Thou shalt not steal" or the Hammurabi Code's version of "don't steal your fellow man's stuff" if Bible language offends you.

That phrase sounds so enlightened, but really...

Another one of those questions that is a strong indicator of the percentage of dyed in the wool crazies reading the MDN; the ones who believe WMD really was discovered in Iraq but is suppressed by the liberal media, or Barrack Hussein Obama is a socialist-communist-tyrant or Rush --Limpman-- Limbaugh is a serious political commentator and not a propagandist of the highest order.

Throw out half of the "image is irrelevant" vote because...well just because and add in the "help" vote and you have the core 30% nut-balls of the Republicon party.

I don't know about pumpkins being stolen from the pumpkin patch, not a big deal if you help yourself to one. You can have one.

Out there in North Dakota's Oil Patch, oil is being stolen from North Dakotans by the hundreds of thousands of barrels each day and that's ok with Jack. Not a problem, help yourselves, says Jack.

Jack has damaged his image and the governor's office to the extent that I will never refer to him as the governor ever again. He can clean out his desk, turn in his keys and be gone. The same goes for the idiot who calls himself the lieutenant governor. They are derelict in their duties and are blinded by dogma. They're not state leaders, they're not even men, they're meek mice who roll over for the oil companies. They need to leave office immediately.

They can get in their cars and drive out of North Dakota and never come back.

If you folks think abortion is a woman's choice how about killing the kid when its 3 weeks old? Women get tired of a fussy baby so maybe they could just snuff it out and that would be ok too because after all it is the women's choice as it came from her body and she had to feed it to keep it alive.

That's OK with you people supporting abortion right?

If not tell us why its not right rjhammer and BGGI and centerfield and notfrom the wings.. If it is OK to kill before the baby is born then why not 3 weeks after?

Maybe you don't like the looks of your baby, or maybe you wanted a boy and got a girl, or maybe the hair color is wrong.. why not be able to pas a law to kill it after you have had a chance to try it out.

That's what an abortion is.. A chance to kill off the results of something you were trying out..

(Gay marriage proponents) don't really care about (traditional marriage) - much less (the procreation aspect of marriage) - - they just like to be the bosses of everyone. . . it's important to them that everyone believe the way they do. Kinda sleazy.

Apologies for the edit, billgrr.

I wonder if people in PA are worrying about their image these days.

Kermit Gosnell, the "house of horrors" abortionist of Philadelphia, is currently on trial for his practices.

I don't play favorites. I dislike and detest Republicans just as much as I do Democrats. Neither one deserves to be in any government position.
