More Trigger laws getting approved

North Dakota State House Strongly Backs Abortion Ban Trigger Law
Bismarck, ND ( -- The North Dakota state House approved a measure that would prohibit most abortions, leaving it legal only in extremely rare cases when it might be necessary to save the life of the mother. The legislation, known as a trigger law, would go into effect once the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.
Rep. James Kerzman, a Democrat, is the primary sponsor of the measure and he said unborn children must be protected in all circumstances, even if a pregnancy is a result of rape or incest.
Good to hear the old country is still fighting the fight.
Christopher Dodson, executive director of the North Dakota Catholic Conference, said his group supports the bill because it doesn't have prison terms and fines for women, like past abortions bans that the legislature has rejected.

"The woman is second victim in the abortion tragedy,"
Dodson told the Tribune newspaper.
So, true. Penalize the perpetrators of this crime. And more often than not, the women are just victims pushed into it by others.
Other states are considering trigger laws as well, including Texas, Virginia, Oklahoma and Utah
Except it looks like Utah will challenge the Roe v Wade rather than just going for the trigger law.
