NT4M, your transformation into a walking, talking Democrat advertisement appears complete.

Welcome to the Left Wing. It's all yours.

More c/p...

rhrealitycheck . org/article/2013/03/01/challenges-in-the-trans-vaginal-ultrasound-debate/

"Both supporters and opponents of abortion rights get another thing wrong: they misunderstand standard abortion practice. The use of trans-vaginal ultrasounds is routine among abortion providers. When I started this work three decades ago, pregnant women often had to wait until they were seven or eight weeks pregnant before providers felt comfortable performing an abortion—they needed to wait that long to confirm a pregnancy and its placement. With advances in ultrasound technology—specifically the ability to conduct trans-vaginal ultrasounds—providers can now verify an intrauterine pregnancy as early as 4 weeks. Women no longer have to wait through weeks of pregnancy symptoms and distress before having a desired abortion. Trans-vaginal ultrasound is a useful tool and shouldn’t be maligned by abortion rights supporters seeking to make a quick exaggerated political point."

And a c/p for NT4M's second point, minus the hysteria.

The governor signed three bills, easily googled: ND (bill#) legiscan

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; and to provide a penalty." From the bill: "Except when a medical emergency exists that prevents compliance with this subsection, an individual may not perform an abortion on a pregnant woman before determining, in accordance with standard medical practice, if the unborn child the pregnant woman is carrying has a detectable heartbeat." I'm not sure that a transvaginal ultrasound qualifies as "standard medical practice" (see next post).

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

NT4M, your first point. I'm not lying when I say I'm pro-choice. I choose not to have an abortion. But the other side says I can't have that designation. I can't be pro-choice.

The media and abortion supporters have deemed folks like me to be "anti-abortion" instead of "pro-life." So now I can call those calling me anti-abortion liars?

Get real. If you promote abortion, it's pro-abortion. If you don't promote abortion, it's anti-abortion. Is this issue just about semantics?

Thank you governor, is right. Did you realize that in federal cases, the loser pays the legal fees of the winner. Now, even the Gov. thinks we will lose, but he wants to push it. Well, get ready to pay both sides of the fees. the lawyers are laughin all the way to the bank. No property tax cuts, no income tax cuts, Roads? infrastructure? But double the legal fees. Great deal for the people of ND. Maybe Jack should give back the couple of million in subsidies his family farm gets.

Why can't you people stay out of other people’s lives. You are the same ones who don't support programs for the poor. What happens after these children are born is not your concern is it? You are the same ones who molest and rape children and believe it is god's will when it results in a pregnancy. You have no right to make decisions over the body of another person. Get your stinking religion out of the lives of others. Free will means god gave man and women the right to choose, not the legislator, not the governor. I hope you all burn in*****for your sins. You want to save lives, then help the living. Give up your wealth to the poor. Oh wait, you don’t give things up like your money or your guns!

This letter states just what legislation the governor signed. No more, no less. The frenzied pro-abortion folks are the ones lying about the signed legislation. Period.
