The North Dakota Senate will vote within the next two days on SB2368. It passed by a large majority in both the House and Senate in the original form, but an amendment was added in the House, thereby requiring the Senate to re-consider it. As you know, SB 2368 is a late term ban on abortions done after 20 weeks gestation when we know that a baby feels pain. The added amendment specifies that no tax payer funding can be given to entities that promote or provide abortion. (This would prevent a situation like the one in the news a few weeks ago when Planned Parenthood was going to sponsor “sex ed” at NDSU.) Contact your Senator and respectfully ask him/her to support SB 2368 and the amendment. Click here to see a copy of the bill.
Most importantly, however, there are four specific senators we would ask you to contact:
