Legislative Victories Today!! Two pro-life bills passed in the House today! This is great news!
SB 2368 is based on the NRLC model legislation protecting In layman terms, this bans all abortions after 20 weeks, because at 20 weeks the baby can feel pain and we feel that ND has a right to protect pain-capable children, even in the womb.
SB 2305 simply requires The language is inspired by another state in which local abortionists failed to get admitting privileges, which led to the closing of the abortion clinic in that state. The argument for this bill is that doctors coming to this state to perform abortions must have all the proper privileges to take care of ND women in case an emergency might occur during the abortion procedure.
House Bill 1456 – “Heartbeat Bill”
HB 1456 is being referred to as “the heartbeat bill”. This bill asserts that the state of North Dakota has a compelling state interest in defending any human life with a detectable heartbeat. Heartbeat is detectable sometime between 5 ½ weeks and 7 weeks gestational age. The simple idea behind this is that in ND we declare someone as “dead” when there heart beat stops, so it is logical that they must then be “alive” if they have a detectable heartbeat.
