Dear Pro-life Friends,
We were thrilled when HB 1450 The Defense of Human Life Act passed the North Dakota House of Representatives 68-25. We’re deeply upset by what happened next.
Senators Olafson and Nething ruined a great pro-life bill.
Just as in 2009, Senator Olafson, while calling himself “pro-life”, led the pro-abortion charge. In good faith and with great patience, Senator Margaret Sitte and all the pro-life groups worked with Olafson to find language on which we could agree. But Senator Olafson managed to get rape and incest exceptions added to the bill before he tabled the bill on the Senate floor, disallowing a vote.
Sen. Olafson and certain other Republican leaders betrayed us and the babies whose lives depend upon us.
We thank the many Democratic legislators who stood for life and supported this legislation.
Even though this bill was tabled, it is still possible to revive it before the end of the session. We need your help to give life to HB 1450 so as to give life to unborn children.
Even if you’re from out of state, please contact these senators. Tell them to remove the rape and incest exceptions and put HB 1450 up for a vote.
HB 1450 (with exceptions removed) would ban all abortion in North Dakota.
