Conference Applauds Signing of Abortion Bill
April 24, 2023
The North Dakota Catholic Conference applauds Governor Burgum for signing SB 2150.
Senate Bill 2150 unifies, clarifies, and strengthens North Dakota’s abortion laws It is the result of months of work involving legislators, public officials, pro-life organizations, and the state’s healthcare organizations.
The legislation also addresses legal concerns expressed by the North Dakota Supreme Court in proceedings challenging the now-repealed “trigger ban.”
SB 2150 had an emergency clause, which means it goes into effect immediately. We rejoice that North Dakota has taken this important step toward making the state a sanctuary for life.
We are mindful that banning abortion is not enough. Everyone, including the state government, must respond with love so that women and families receive the support and care needed so that abortion becomes unthinkable.
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.
