Skinner, I'm glad you're here to speak for women.

The legislature spoke for those without a voice. I'll stand with the dooffuses that voted for this any day.

The real wake up call is going to be when we as a nation can see past the diversionary tactics of the pro-abortion crowd, and recognize what we have allowed to happen all these years.

First of all, a woman's body is her own. the ND legislature has no business legislating a woman's body.

The State of North Dakota will lose this case and needs to be taught a lesson on what should be legislated and what should not be legislated.

Women should be outraged that the state thinks it has a right to a woman's body. The state has no right whatsoever to legislate such a thing. The doofusses who want to call themselves 'Republicans' need a wake up call.

The State of ND will lose this lawsuit, as it should. I hope it costs the state every nickel it has.

The Republicans need to go away. Is there any way that they can be transported to a gulag in Siberia? Be a good place for them.

Nobody likes new laws but if we have ever needed a new law this is it. A law against the government being allowed to hold up governing based on political party. The new law will allow competition between parties only for a specific time before elections and cannot be carried out from within the wall of our Capitals and associated buildings. This country has become so divided it has stalled out. On a grand scale the people we elect need to be forced to work together it looks like to this simple man.

It is truly funny to watch you squirm and twist in the wind, dusty. It seem you always need multiple posts and lots of time to make a simple reply. You need that much time to reply to a simple post? Your inane post of 4-21, 10:16 was certainly pathetic. But then your reply came on 2-22 at 11:13, then it took you 45 minutes (11:58) to think up more stuff and gosh, you forgot some more and posted again at 12:07. Unfortunately, they are "pathetic" posts as well. Can't you do better than that? Maybe you should change your handle to "pathetic3" as it would be fitting.

ERrr that should have read....

"... When I stated that there are way too many Republican pro-choicers (I'm paraphrasing myself now)..."

"Start getting your facts straight if you want to be taken seriously."

What fact? Well here's a little fact for you. What you quoted from me, I did not present as a fact. I stated it purely as an OPINION. Do you even know the difference? Let me demonstrate. When I stated that there are way too many Republican pro-lifers (I'm paraphrasing myself now), I didn't quantify how many "too many" was. I simply stated that there were too many. An intelligent person would have instantly recognized the subjective nature of those two words, and immediately dismissed them as non-verifiable, and therefore opinion. Do you see how this works?

Well, just in case you don't, I'll take it further. Had I stated the 28 percent of Republicans leaned toward the pro-choice side of the issue, then that would be something you could verify. And then if your findings did not match my assertion, you could then call me out on my facts being incorrect.

Dura, that sounds a lot like a judgement call on your part? Are you sure you want to go there?

I happen to agree, a little bit, but I would have to extend the "pathetic" to the whole conversation. Why limit it to Dusty? Is it because PL's comment was so insightful and brilliant?

I would love for someone to tell me when Conservatives suddenly started embracing the pro-abortion side of the abortion issue. I gave up on this with the Republican party as whole a long time ago, because there are way too many pro-choice Republicans out there.

Well, the trouble is that Republican and Christian is an oxymoron.

Our Republican Legislatures, well some, aren't really true Republicans. They want you to think they are because they want to paint a picture for you. I honestly don't think people in North Dakota really understand what a true Republican or Democrat is as so many programs are so mixed with support from both parties that it hurts my head to wrap around the issues. I am conservative Republican and the way I was raised I am ashamed of our Republican legislatures.........
