Three of four abortion bills pass in House
BISMARCK -- House lawmakers on Friday defeated one of four measures seeking stricter abortion regulations.
The defeated bill would have defined a human being "as an individual member of the species homo sapiens at every stage of development."
Senate Bill 2303 failed on a 49-43 vote.
The bill also would have prohibited the willful destruction of healthy human embryos.
Two other bills did prevail and will be sent to Gov. Jack Dalrymple for his signature.
