CWA Applauds North Dakota for Defending Life

CWA Applauds North Dakota for Defending Life
By: CWALAC Staff - 3/22/2013

Nance: “The bills in North Dakota protect the lives of the most innocent Americans, those without a voice, in the womb. Hopefully, these bills will start a national discussion about what life is and our duty as a civil society to protect it.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – As the North Dakota legislature considers passage of the remaining four of six pro-life bills, Concerned Women for America CEO and President Penny Nance looks to the future of the pro-life movement:

“We applaud North Dakota for defending life. The bills in North Dakota protect the lives of the most innocent Americans, those without a voice, in the womb. Hopefully, these bills will start a national discussion about what life is and our duty as a civil society to protect it. It starts in the states.

The North Dakota bills already passed ban abortion based on gender and genetic abnormality (HB1305) and ban abortion after a heartbeat is detected (HB1456). The bills still under consideration seek to define a human being (SB 2303), demand that abortion doctors have admitting privileges to hospitals (SB 2305), ban abortions when babies can detect pain (SB 2368), and call for a state constitutional amendment to be added to the ballot defining a human being (SCR 4009).

“As people see the truth of abortion, the dirty money and messaging behind it, and the compassion and redemption the pro-life movement offers, I truly believe we will see waves of similar pro-life legislation in other states. According to the latest Gallup poll, Americans now tilt pro-life by nine percentage points. 2012 was a big year for the pro-life movement, and 2013 is shaping up to follow suit. In 2012, 42 pro-life measures were enacted in 25 states and an average of seven abortion clinics closed every month.

“North Dakota may become the first abortion-free state. Life will truly be sacred and protected in North Dakota. I encourage all pro-lifers to continue to reach out and speak out. We are making a difference. The entire nation is watching North Dakota.”
