Hollywood has won. As I read the comments here, I cannot help but laugh at the absurd notion that what we need is Roe, contraception, iuds, etc.!!!! What we need is to wake up, tell hollywood adios, and remember that each life is precious. Each life. Robert1824, please do not come anywhere near me for lightening will probably take you out for your absurd reasoning. What Americans basically demand now is sex on demand with whoever I please and no consequences. Sorry, that isn't reality--our actions have consequences.

faithhopecharity, you are an idiot for blaming Hollywood for societal problems. Contraceptives PREVENT abortions,you moron ! "Each life is precious". Yeah sure, until it's out of th ewomb. Then anti-choice hypocrites could not care less about children .
Sexual misconduct, promiscuity, illegitimacy, abortion, etc were commonplace all over the world long befdore ovies and Hollywood existed, and they always will . You're barking up the wrong tree ! And by the way, even if you have faith and hope, you have NO CHARITY for poor children .

btw, I didn't mean to be rude, but you must deal with the world. Most teens are not Amish, and live in the world. You can't reduce abortion rates without reducing unwanted pregnancies. The only reliable way of reducing unwanted pregnancies is birth control. This is not Hollywood. This is reality. There is a reason why middle class folks in the US have lower rates of teen pregnancies and abortions than lower class folks. The lower class is 1. not as well educated 2. has less access guessed it...BIRTH CONTROL.

Nah. Answer is birth control. If there is a teen on here, USE BIRTH CONTROL!!! Get on the pill before you become sexually active, and get into the habit of using it regularly. Better yet, have an iud inserted. If you have a gf, make 1000000000000% sure she is on reliable birth control before you have sex. In all cases, use a condom, as that prevents stds.

...and enjoy.

On March 15, the North Dakota senate approved a bill that prevents abortions from being performed once a developing child’s heartbeat is detected in the mother’s womb.

This heartbeat can usually be heard “six to seven weeks into a pregnancy,” so it’s after that point that abortions will be prohibited in the state if Gov. Jack Dalrymple signs the bill.

Besides protecting life once a heartbeat is detected, North Dakota lawmakers passed a bill prohibiting “sex-selective abortions and abortions based on a diagnosis of genetic abnormality.”

Until this current pro-life push by North Dakota lawmakers, the most significant abortion ban...
