North Dakota Measure 1

On March 22, 2013, the North Dakota legislature took the historic step of passing the first Personhood amendment in the United States, 57-35. For the first time in United States history, a legislative body has approved a personhood amendment in both the House and the Senate. Now the amendment will be referred to the people of North Dakota for a vote in November 2014.

Personhood USA’s project, Love Them Both North Dakota, is promoting Measure 1. The amendment was written to ensure that mother and baby are both treated as medical patients, that medical care is not inhibited, and that fertility treatments are not banned.

How will the North Dakota Human Life Amendment work?

The North Dakota Human Life Amendment will simply ensure that the inalienable right that is already mentioned in the state constitution is not denied to any human being.

North Dakota’s Measure 1 states:

The inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected.

North Dakota is just one popular vote away from passing the Human Life Amendment. It is not an exaggeration to say that the most important election in the country in 2014 will be in North Dakota!

Is Measure 1 Necessary?

On April 18, Cass County District Court Judge Wickham Corwin ruled that he would block a pro-life law because he is “convinced that a woman’s reproductive rights [abortion as a form of birth control] must be protected under the state constitution and must be recognized as fundamental.”

16 states have already judicially imposed a “right” to abortion-on-demand upon the people. They include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia.

Even though it is not a judge’s right to make law, Judge Corwin’s ruling seeks to enshrine a legal right to abortion in the North Dakota Constitution. This patently undemocratic power-play cannot be allowed to stand, and we cannot allow that to happen.

The Human Life Amendment is the best way to stop Judge Corwin’s radical agenda and ensure that all North Dakotans—born or preborn—are protected.
