This morning, the governor of ND approved several laws that will severely restrict women’s rights. These laws ban abortion after a fetal heart rate is heard, bans abortions for genetic abnormalities including Down Syndrome, and effectively bans IVF. Watch the video in this first article for more info on that.
I am embarrassed to be from this state.

I dont really feel comfortable that some old politican has a right to tell me what to do if i was raped and was pregnant with a severely deformed child who would not survive being born.
Thats a totally exaggerated analogy, but you get my point.

I really do not know what to say to this.

They are trying to force the Supreme Court to revisit Roe V Wade.
Looking forward to the laws catching up with my generation’s views on abortion, gay marriage, etc etc. Even as an adult, it still feels like in a lot of legal aspects, we are having to answer to our parents’ generations outdated views, since they are the ones in power.
Such a sad day to be a woman.

Crazy. The Supreme Court will (hopefully) strike this down as unconstitutional.

@crayfish: Such a sad day to be a woman. Exactly.

How ridiculously depressing. Whether or not you agree with abortion in general, we need to universally agree that no one, absolutely no one should have the power to tell a woman what they can and cannot do with their own uterus.
This is tragic. I would be so upset if I was an ND resident.

I am not a fan of abortion. However my Mother (who was a nurse) told me horror stories from the days of back-street abortions and women who attempted to do their own abortions – with disasterous results. Abortions have been around for as long as women have been getting pregnant. The Native Americans used herbs like Pennyroyal to induce miscarriages, especially if they were raped by Europeans.

This is so sad. I’m getting more than a little tired of old men telling women what they can and can’t do with their uterus.

Ridiculous. This will work about as well as the War on Drugs, I imagine.

Dude, fuck you, ND.
For people who are against abortions: I get you. That’s why being pro-choice is awesome. You can be against abortions and still be for women’s choice over their own bodies! There are so many reasons women have abortions, and no one person/body can tell another what rights a woman has. Banning abortion will only lead to bad things. Allowing abortion allows women SAFE, CLEAN places and EDUCATED PROFESSIONALS to perform them.

This state and Arkansas are so backward. What part of safe, legal and rare did they not get in the 90s?

I could be wrong and I have a headache so not googling it. But I think ND is the only state without any abortion provider, so there’s a lot of DIY and “herbal” abortions.
