This governor has shown callous disregard for women who face a situation he will never find himself in. Women of North Dakota, read the writing on the wall. Your legislature and governor have decided that you do not have the right, wisdom and moral agency to make decisions about the most personal aspects of your lives. If you think it stops here, it won't. You are second-class citizens going forward. Get out of that regressive jurisdiction as soon as you can.

Hold on let me get my abacus out of the basement to calculate how far backward this takes the GOP. Dick Tracy had a wrist radio a while ago........

Some of these fascist Republicans are the best argument in support of abortion that I can think of.

As for the point about women having the "moral agency" well, most of the time, I would have to say no they do not if they are going for an abortion just to get rid of a nusance. Only about 1 percent of abortions are due to rape or incest. Looks like society does not have a good track record when it comes to morals.

For the most part, (I am relying on responses I have read on the issue of abortion in these forums) The women that would have the abortion would be those that raise liberals, and the women that would not have an abortion would be raising future “fascist republicans”.

I'll agree that fetus' aren't Children when Women agree that they can't sue anyone for the loss of that child if there is an accident and the father of the child can't be charged with Murder if the child dies after assault. I want it ONE way. Either the fetus is a child or it's not. IMHO, It is a child.

I think it's a great suggestion. IMHO, it's not a child, let's just stick to that.

When I see comments actually supporting abortion, I have to ask where we have gone as a country. I'm against using abortion as a means of convenience or birth control - that is hardly an extreme position.

"it's not a child, let's just stick to that"......another liberal that knows it all and has it all figured out. I challenge you to good Dr. Kermit Gosnell. Read about his exploits killing late term babies, then see how you feel about your statement.

gmancini: although we disagree on the status of the child, it's good that we agree that there should only be ONE definition. Unfortunately, people are greedy and want the money if they have an accident and that "clump or cells" miraculously become a child the minute it dies and becomes a million dollar payoff in court! Doesn't matter that the mother was on the way to the doctor to have that child's life taken when the accident occurred.
