North Dakota considers pro-life trigger law

Bismarck, ND ( -- The North Dakota state House approved a measure that would prohibit most abortions, leaving it legal only in extremely rare cases when it might be necessary to save the life of the mother. The legislation, known as a trigger law, would go into effect once the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.
The House voted 61-26 to pass a measure (HB 1466) which would charge anyone who does an abortion with a five year prison term and a $5,000 fine.

The bill would also give parents of pregnant minors and partners of pregnant women the right to file suit to stop an abortion.

Rep. James Kerzman, a Democrat, is the primary sponsor of the measure and he said unborn children must be protected in all circumstances, even if a pregnancy is a result of rape or incest.

"My parents raised me to accept all life, and I have never questioned that," he told the Bismarck Tribune newspaper.


Do you think all these politicians know something that most people don't?

It sounds to me that the reversal of Roe v. Wade is only a matter of time.
