Excuse me, the governor signed three bills.

HB 1305 is the bill "relating to the prohibition on abortions for sex selection or genetic abnormalities."

HB 1456 is the bill "relating to limitations on abortion after a determination of detectable heartbeat in an unborn child and to grounds for disciplinary action for physicians."

SB 2305 is the bill "relating to limitations on physicians and abortion facilities."

I'm not sure that the signed legislation will do all that DisappointedInND is alleging.

I'll be checking out the language of the two bills that the governor signed.

I'm very disappointed in this article MDN. We are not "PRO ABORTION" like your article suggests, and these are NOT abortion bills, they're PERSONHOOD bills, brought from out of state by PersonhoodUSA. Victims of rape would be forced to carry a pregnancy that resulted from sexual violence, women whose health is at risk would also be prohibited from terminating their pregnancy, and miscarriages will be chargeable with homicide, manslaughter, or reckless endangerment. Couples who want a baby would be devastated by the impact this anti-family legislation would have on infertility services in ND. SCR 4009 could ban, and SB 2303 could restrict, IVF and ultimately affect the availability of other infertility services. Not to mention it will cost $1.7-$4m tax dollars to fight these bills. According to the Pew Research Center in Jan. 2013, only 29% of Americans would like to see Roe v. Wade overturned; even many people who define themselves as pro-life see a need for safe and legal a

It seems like if you are going to call an article DUELING PRO-TESTs, you should at least talk about the 2 sides or groups you're referring too. Your article uses the picture of the STAND UP FOR BABIES group and a picture of STAND UP FOR WOMEN both from Minot, however the whole article is embellishing on just the pro-choice Stand up for Women's group and what they've done at the capitol. This is very disappointing in you MDN for being one sided! The STAND UP FOR BABIES group was just trying peacefully to say there's other voices in Minot that do encourage the Governor to sign the bills. We did not want to be aggressive in any way and that is why we did not rally near the Stand Up For Women's group. I just wanted to say to the Minot Daily that you have many people disappointed in this article and would like you to please report accurate and neutral. One last thing, we want to Thank our wonderful Governor for signing yes to the 3 abortion related measures today!

The "right" to abortions was "legislated" by the judicial branch. Now the "progressives" don't like it that a legislature is "legislating"?

Abortion is like cutting out your heart to save your pocketbook.
