North Dakota's War On Women's Health

February 8, 2013

In the state of North Dakota there is only ONE abortion clinic. They hold the prize for the state rated worst in the country for women. These bills passed yesterday will make it even more difficult for women to access abortion care—when it’s already practically impossible in this state.

The Personhood Constitutional Amendment initiative gives LEGAL RIGHTS and protections to human embryos. The Republican’s bill shamelessly goes against Roe V. Wade, as Sen. Maragaret Sitte stated: "We are intending that it be a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade, since Scalia said that the Supreme Court is waiting for states to raise a case."

The State's Senate also passed a bill that would SHUT DOWN North Dakota's ONLY abortion clinic, the Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo, by requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.

Yesterday, in “For Womens Rights ” DFA called on our supporters to take action in response to the legislation in Michigan that would require women seeking an abortion to undergo an invasive ultrasound. Today, we continue to fight for Women's Rights and hope to shed a serious light on this legislation that the Tea Party supported State Senates are passing.

DFA is calling on our members to stand up for Womens Rights. Please donate today . Enough is enough.
