Abortion Referral

Abortion Referral

Apr 3, 2013 at 12:26 pm

A pro-life supporter is leading the effort to refer three anti-abortion laws in North Dakota.  Gary Hangsleben of Grand Forks says the voters of North Dakota deserve a chance to weigh in on legislation designed to make the state’s abortion laws the toughest in the nation.   Hangsleben says North Dakota is in a unique position to challenge the U-S Supreme Court’s Roe vs Wade ruling.

One measure would ban abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, when a fetal heartbeat can first be detected. Another would prohibit women from having an abortion because a fetus has a genetic defect, such as Down syndrome.

Supporters of the referral need to collect 13-thousand-452 signatures to place the issue on the ballot.
