    Take note my fellow Mormons:
    This legislation is NOT in harmony with the LDS Church.

    There is no exceptions for:
    Rape, Incest, Life and Health of the Woman, or viability of the Fetus.

    An abortion on a fetus 12 weeks or more, is called a "partial birth abortion." Can be done by "saline (salt) amniocentesis." Saline injected into uterus. Baby poisoned, burned. Painful. Mother delivers, dead, burned, shriveled baby. Or, 2nd-3rd trimester (12 weeks on...), curette inserted. Fetus cut-up. Placenta & fetus parts scraped out through cervix.

    You could make it six days or six hours. Of course, you'd also have to check each vehicle leaving the state to check all women of child bearing age to see if anyone was pregnant. Then you'd have to check them IN again to make sure they still were, or at least that they had a doctor's report on what had ended the pregnancy. I understand ND has a big state surplus, but is this REALLY the way state resources should be used, assuming, that is, that a court challenge doesn't get the law thrown out first?

    Why would an obstetrician want to practice in ND with the threat of prosecution hanging over every decision you make?

    Owning a gun that can kill lots of people is bad, but killing someone with a heartbeat is good.

    More wasted taxpayer money spent in an attempt to impose religious beliefs. The Supreme Court has already ruled very clearly on this issue, and this will easily be defeated in court. Like has happened in other states before, the state of North Dakota will be left with the bill for legal fees on both sides, all for a symbolic gesture.

    A lot of similarities here with the recent legislation being considered on gun control. More goverment control deciding what is moral, legal and for the betterment of society. If nothing else it keeps the guys and gals in black ropes employed.
