Letter: Thank you for signing the billsThank you, Gov. Jack Dalrymple for signing HB 1305, SB 2305 and HB 1456. While out-of-state abortion money is being spent trying to convince North Dakotans that these bills are the result of “anti-choice” extremists, it is really the opposition that is extreme.
Pro-abortion organizations have been trying to distract North Dakotans from what these bills really do by claiming that they ban IVF or birth control. They are also spreading the myth that these bills will interfere with life-saving medical procedures for the mother.
Truly, the extremists are those who are opposed to these bills: They simply want abortion on demand without regard to reason, safety or the viability of the unborn child.
