Statement on Signing of House Bill 1546
The North Dakota Catholic Conference is pleased that Governor Doug Burgum has signed House Bill 1546, which would prohibit the practice of dismemberment abortions. While every abortion should be considered unacceptable, the people of North Dakota have wisely seen that this particularly gruesome procedure should never occur. We look forward to the day the Supreme Court allows this law to go into effect. In the meantime, we ask that everyone continues to work toward creating a society where no woman ever feels compelled to consider an abortion.
What We Do
The North Dakota Catholic Conference acts on behalf of the Roman Catholic bishops of North Dakota to respond to public policy issues of concern to the Catholic Church and to educate Catholics and the general public about Catholic social doctrine.
