Choice Wins Again N.Dakota Abortion Law Struck Down By Federal Judge

Choice Wins Again: North Dakota Law Barring Abortion By Medication Struck Down By Federal Judge | Addicting Info



And so the rulings begin. North Dakota has made effort after effort in the last few years to ban abortion. To achieve that goal, Republicans in the state passed a law in 2011 which bans the prescription and use of medication to end a pregnancy in the first trimester, despite the fact that first trimester abortions are legal and medication abortions are safe. Fast forward to 2013 and the North Dakota GOP passed even more laws, all of which seek to challenge Roe v. Wade. Among the new laws is a fetal heartbeat bill that could ban abortion as early as six weeks after conception, a fetal pain bill that bans abortion after 20 weeks on the false notion that fetuses feel pain that early in a pregnancy, and a personhood resolution that would ban abortion entirely if voters approve the measure in 2014. Republicans know these laws are unconstitutional and will be challenged in court, which is why they’ve approved a larger budget for the state attorney general. But a ruling by a federal judge on the 2011 law may serve as an indication that North Dakota is about to lose the legal battle at the expense of millions of taxpayer dollars.


On Thursday, a US district judge in the state ruled that HB 1297, which bans medication abortion, is unconstitutional. Judge Wickham Corwin wrote that North Dakota’s excuse that the bill is meant to keep women safe is “exaggerated and contrived” and is clearly designed to “stand in the way of women’s health,” and women’s constitutional right to have an abortion in the way her and her doctor deem best.

No.

They are free not to have an abortion, free not to approve of them either.

Get it?

just like in 1849, we were free not to own slaves, and dissaprove of others who do.

This is the misery Roe v. Wade had caused. The Texas law was at the bar, the majority took the opportunity to throw out all 50 state laws regarding abortion. Unwarranted decision, tens of million dead children. Return it to the states where it was, until 1973 when a new 'right' was suddenly discovered.

N. Dakota will appeal. We will win.

This is a district court ruling. It has a long way to go. What the article failed to mention is the law that went into effect in March that would not allow an abortion after a heartbeat is detected.
Thanks from Truth Detector

That would be about 8 12 weeks.
