    I'm all for abortion. If you have to have a baby when you don't want a baby-surely that's the biggest recipe for disaster ever.
    This is ridiculous-and yes it will drive it underground and cause all sorts of medical and legal problems, and yes people will just have to travel further afield to get one. Ugh.If I was in Dakota I'd move. Or never have sex*.

    *Move.

    All this will lead to is more backstreet abortions and as a result of that, dead women.

    No it isn't, especially if it's satirical, Besides only those on the path to enlightenment of the flying spaghetti monster would understand, "may the high noodleness guide you away from the temptation of ravioli. And deliver you on the path to lasagne". (Garlic 1:13) "And may the meatball riches of the FSM encourage the stressed woman to have an abortion if need arise, for the high carb diety truly understands the stresses bestowed upon pregnancy" (tomatoes 16:5)

    If you can have a magic man that you believe is in the skies telling you abortions are not okay, why can't I have a giant bowl of noodles in the skies that I believe in telling me abortion is good when extenuating circumstances arise?

    Edit: yes I know what a disgustingly abhorrent view I hold, saying abortions should be okay for extenuating circumstances! Well worth the neg.

    Sometimes I honestly don't know anymore whether to care (after all, it's not my country) or whether just to be proud to belong to a region of the world where civilisation is not always on the brink of being pushed out by some group of religious people. In a way, they're just f***ing themselves.

    Now now let's be fair America has done nothing wrong here. This state may be moving into the Stone Age but America itself shouldn't be blamed, after all state law differs markedly from federal law which in most cases isn't to bad at all.

    God look at me defending the Americans what has become of me?!

    America--This is why I'm moving to the UK.

    Pro-choice, personally pro-life, but not giving the person the ability to choose is unreasonable.
    a) At what point does an egg, a zygote, an embryo obtain personhood? Is it REALLY killing? If so, when I expel an egg each month on my period, is that reckless abandonment? (watched legally blonde earlier today)
    b) Foster care has proven to be pretty terrible. Why bring unwanted children into the world if you are unable to care for them?
    c) The cells in fetal tissue have proven to be capable of remarkable things. Person doesn't want baby, researchers want aborted fetus, everybody wins?

    Again, personally against abortions, but it's my body and I'm financially stable, unlike a lot of Americans.
    Should be a person's choice.
    The only discrepancy I see is when the father of the child wants to keep it, but the mother wants to abort. Then things can get a little fishy, but I guess the girl has final say because it is her body =/

    Okay I'm pro life too but a) isn't really a good reason, firstly it's a gameate at that stage meaning it hasn't got enough chromosomes inside the cell to begin the reproduction of the cell to create life as its needed to be fertilized, by a sperm cell. BUT B) an excellent reason, you really don't want to be in one long term it messes with your head trust me! and C) it's amazing what they can do with embryonic stem cells, that's honestly a really good reason I'd personally add a D) what about 1) what about socioeconomic distress 2) what if the father walked? And 3) there's always the sad truth that women can get pregnant by getting raped! Awful to mention but it happens occasionally.

    ...embarrassment to the rest of the US. It's 2013, for god's sake.
    Everytime I hear or see this statement it is an embarrassment to all of us.

    It is nothing but a cop out.

    Advocating abortion isn't, whether you think it's murder or not it's still legal to advocate it. Even in North Dakota it is, if they haven't seceded themselves from the USA and made their own constitution without a first amendment, that is.

    Animals are still murdered in the production of vegetables! Hoping this person is a fruitarian, and only consumes fruit that has fallen naturally from the plant (not picked off).

    They must be. Otherwise they are being very selective over which 'murders' they condone. Hopefully, North Dakota is going to outlaw eating meat too, otherwise it's a bit of a mixed message.

    Slitting the throat of, or electrocuting, an unquestionably living animal that can feel pain, for food, is fine. A living, breathing animal is far less important than a human's diet..

    But removing an embryo before it progresses to a foetus/person, when it definitely can't feel pain and isn't capable of consciousness - no, let's sit back and watch coat hanger sales go up.
