The conservatives are moaning and complaining about the "entitlements". Force women to have kids they don't want and can't afford and see the effects of slashing public programs. It won't be pretty. Back alley abortions, here we come.

Millions in ND taxpayer dollars will be wasted in court over this law. And ND will lose.

He should definitely sign this bill into law. Everyone deserves a chance to grow up. This isn't a political issue, a religious issue, or a women's rights issue. This is a moral issue. Abortion based on genetic defects and gender is just plain immoral and wrong. Also icart68, I think you need to look for the whole story regarding what our state Congress has supposedly cut. There is more to the story than what you said, particularly the milk story.

I don't want my tax dollars paying for women's abortions. Go to another state. It's not my fault most of them use this as birth control, since they won't take responsibility for their own actions.

If the Legislators are voting in response and according to what the people in his/her district wants then the Gov. should follow along. Is this something that should be voted on by we the people before he signs?

If a drunk driver gets behind a wheel and kills someone, they loose their freedom. It cost them money, time behind bars, at their expense. If some moron, gets behind a wheel and does not buckle up and kills themself, well don't have to worry about that moron anymore.

icart, how many glasses of milk and or juice does a child need by lunchtime? You do realize that the democrat got up and apol0gized for using the milk issue to raise money for their coffers, right? No milk was taken away or prevented from being given to the school kids.

I think I did, Minot. What are the consequences of getting an abortion with tax dollars of a woman who uses abortion as birth control. How many abortions should we pay for one woman.

waddleman- What about rape? What about incest? What about the times the ****** breaks or the pill doesn't work? You are right, though. I think women should "keep her lockbox closed up tight". Cuz it's always the women's fault.

"Cuz it's always the women's fault."

I disagree with this. When we were teenagers, there was some blunt advice going around for the guys too: keep your zipper zipped.

roxie, of course, it is not always the woman's 'fault, but if women are demanding control over their own bodies, than we should include not only post sex behvior, but also behavior prior to and up to the moment of sex.

Minot, by all means get pregnant as many times as you want to. And get as many abortions as you want to. Who cares? I just don't want to pay for it. Go goofy. Pay for your very own life decisions.

Although I am very conservative, I feel abortions are a necessary evil as long as both women and men don't take responsibility for their sexuality and reproduction. I wish we could do away with it completely but since not all adults are responsible, there would be a lot of back alley abortions anyway.I do not want to pay for a single abortion, however, as accountability rests on the shoulders of the irresponsible. I also don't think any child should be born who isn't desperately wanted. I also don't think exceptions should be written into law for incest or rape. The baby from those encounters can be loved as well as any other born of a loving father and mother. Saving the mother's life should be, in an ideal world, the only reason for an abortion.

Insane, unscientific legislation like this is nothing short of an attempt to deny women our human rights. The right wing feels emboldened in their march to remove our right to control our own bodies. They are determined to send women back to the dark ages of back-alley abortions and legally sanctioned inequality.

We must maintain the right to control our own bodies and our own lives. We must fight this legislation, for women in North Dakota and all over the United States! Go to this website and sign tell Dalpimple that we won't go back!!! ***********defendwomensrights****/pages/north-dakota-hb-1456-action-alert.html#.UURxZ8WO-3U.facebook

As for you Waddle "man" I did look at what the state has cut...Have you, or are you watching FAUX news again?? As for you Missy - Guess what, your tax dollars aren't paying for abortions...They are paying for tax cuts for millionaires/billionaires, and the gas and oil companies...902B is being spent on defense, while 136 is spent on education...Where the h**l are your priorities??
