LoveThemBoth-MotherBaby6North Dakota voters on Election Day will have an amendment option on their ballot that would declare in the state constitution that life begins at conception. The single-sentence measure would be the nation’s first to amend a state constitution and require the “inalienable right to life” at “any stage of development.” Supporters say it’s meant to protect the state’s current abortion laws from judicial activism. Those opposed believe the intent is to outlaw abortion altogether and say the vague wording could affect birth control, end-of-life care plans and in vitro fertilization. The poorly worded option could lead to millions of dollars in litigation suits, so even Christian conservatives are hoping this option will not pass in this form.
