Last week, North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple signed three anti-abortion/pro-life bills into law.
“HB1305 places a ban on abortions that are performed solely because the baby has a genetic disorder or because they are not the desired sex wanted by the parents. Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President of Americans United for Life, praised the signing of the bill saying:
“A civil society does not discriminate against people – born and unborn – for their sex or for disability. We should be celebrating diversity, not destroying it.”
“Women in particular have been targeted for death in the womb, and we’ve also seen dramatic abortion rates for children with disabilities which put them at risk for extinction. Gov. Jack Dalrymple, Rep. Bette Grande and the legislators in North Dakota have shown courageous humanity in passing this legislation.”
“HB 1456 places a ban on all abortions once a fetal heartbeat has been detected. In signing this bill into law, Dalrymple stated:
“I have signed HB 1456 which would ban abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. Although the likelihood of this measure surviving a court challenge remains in question, this bill is nevertheless a legitimate attempt by a state legislature to discover the boundaries of Roe v. Wade.”
“Because the U.S. Supreme Court has allowed state restrictions on the performing of abortions and because the Supreme Court has never considered this precise restriction in HB 1456, the constitutionality of this measure is an open question.”
“SB 2305 places strict guidelines on anyone performing an abortion requiring them to have hospital privileges. In signing this bill, Dalrymple commented:
“I have signed SB 2305 which requires admitting and staff privileges at a nearby hospital for any physician who performs abortions in North Dakota. The added requirement that the hospital privileges must include allowing abortions to take place in their facility greatly increases the chances that this measure will face a court challenge. Nevertheless, it is a legitimate and new question for the courts regarding a precise restriction on doctors who perform abortions.”
Soon after signing the bills, the governor’s office began receiving phone calls and emails. Not all of the communications were supportive of the governor’s actions. Reports indicated that Dalrymple had received some death threats from pro-abortionists.
Once word of the threats got out, the leader of one of the state’s pro-abortion groups posted on their Stand Up for Women ND page:
“We have received word that Governor Dalrymple is receiving death threats. Please, friends, do not make these inappropriate threats against ANYONE, and please urge your friends to do the same.”
“PLEASE NO CRIMINAL THREATS! NO VIOLENCE! We want stoic, respectful solidarity or we will not be taken seriously. Thank you!” (Emphasis in original.)
Incredibly, some pro-abortionists accused pro-lifers of making the threats just to make the pro-abortion people look bad. However, state authorities have verified that at least one genuine threat had been made and that the threat originated from somewhere in Richland County. The threat is being investigated by authorities
This only supports my view that abortion is very much like evolution in that it is a religion of death. Kill unborn babies and threaten to kill anyone who tries to save the lives of the unborn. Even though making a death threat against a public official, especially a governor is a felony offence, preserving the ability to kill the innocents is all that matters to them. Many of them even endorse assisted suicide, euthanasia, infanticide and the termination of the severely physical and mentally disabled.
Ironically, many of the same people are against the death penalty for murderers and they advocate saving whales, owls and rare darter fish. They have no qualms killing unborn children up to the moment of birth and sometimes immediately after being born, but they’ll protest against any form of hunting animals or logging part of a forest. Their values are warped when they value the lives of animals more than they value the lives of people.
