Do you support the N.D. Legislature's decision to reject a bill that would have required at least front seat occupants of vehicles to wear seat belts?

  1. Yes, it's a personal choice
  2. No, seat belts save lives

Very good observation loner about belts and fetuses...and the favorite right wing motto is "Socialism for the rich...Capitalism for the rest".

the child being aborted doesn't have a 'personal choice' but the person putting on a seatbelt does. but Minotloner let's just blame it on the repubs and maybe the messiah will take more from the "rich" bad guys and re-distribute it to His subjects.

Unbelieveable! This is what our ND legislature spends its time on! Just because some fat farmer is to lazy to click on his seat belt that could save his life! Really!

My question is, why isn't there seat belts in school buses?

Because seat belts simply do not work the same way in school or city buses as they do cars. The passengers are situated much higher -- and they are not in danger of flying through the window in the event of an impact.

A pregnant woman will have to wear a seat belt on the way to the abortion clinic where she will be forbidden to have a tobacco product while waiting for the appointment for her abortion.

She won't be able to afford the child, can't afford the abortion, but nobody will be there when the child is born to help pay for the medical costs. No need to offer any kind of help, she's on her own. It's a easy decision to have an abortion when you're left out in the cold. She can gamble, so she might win enough to afford one.

Right to Life hypocrites are no help whatsoever.

And we wonder why it is all completely haywire. It's because we're nuts and are content and complacent with being nuts.

Enough to drive you to drink.

Why can't we be just left alone and be free? Is that asking for too much?

First, with buses, are you going to make the driver responsible for the bucking and releaseing all the belts? As namexxx stated the risks are not the same. Second, the question is wrong. The bill required both adults in front to buckle, bot not the adults in the rear seats. Third, the 'abortion bill' SB2368 was amended by Mathern and passed by the senate to include medical coverage for prenatal, birth and neonatal care.

leftwing, the bill was defeated. There is no primary seatbelt law now.

There is no blanket "federal seat belt law" leftwing.

"In an effort to promote states to pass seat-belt requirements, the NHTSA provides grants to states who pass seat-belt requirements; all states but Maine and Wyoming participate in these programs. The Transportation for Equity Act for the 21st Century, which was passed by congress in the late '90s, also provides grant money as an incentive to states that implement seat-belt regulations and awareness campaigns. These grants don't establish a federal seat belt law or mandate states pass their own, but reward states for enacting safety-belt laws."

Passing seat belt laws is still left up to the states.

I prefer my snark grilled, served open-face on toast, with a side of horseradish.

How about you?

Three-headed elephant is nice too, ssuteed with onions and served with a green salad.

A little goes a long way...
