I blame the lawmakers, not North Dakotans in general.
I just hope it gets overturned. It's a real tragedy.
So many women are going to die from home/illegal abortions, like my great grandmother did in 1925.
So many unwanted babies are going to be dumped or abused/neglected.
It's so misguided and sad.
Quoting Two Princesses:" I sure hope not. SD has already effectively banned abortion outright as of 2006 I think. It's awful ... [snip!] ... man is trying to do. Making abortions illegal won't stop unwanted pregnancy. Women will just go back to the coat hanger days."
It was repealed.
<blockquote><b>Quoting Two Princesses:</b>" I heard in SD they had something called the "Women's Reproductive pretection act" which pretty much banned it outright. but I am not entirely sure the details. Hoping it gets over turned ASAP."</blockquote>
I think they passed some pretty harsh regulations but not like ND. They do have the longest waiting period though. You have to wait 3 days after seeing a psychiatrist and all that stuff but they can't actually ban it.
Quoting Amelia Margaret:" It was repealed."
Oh good. Like this will be soon I hope.

Even that they make it so difacult and traumatic makes me sick.
but at least it is legal.
