Next month, voters in North Dakota will have the opportunity to pass a proposed Human Life Amendment (Measure 1), which will amend the state constitution to say, “The inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected.” The Students for Life #Stand4Life team will be there, on the ground, fighting for this life-saving amendment, and we need your help!
Over the last few years, the citizens and legislators of North Dakota have passed life-saving, common-sense pro-life laws such as requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals, requiring abortionists to be licensed physicians, guaranteeing that parents of minors are notified when their daughter is seeking an abortion, and giving women all the information about abortion before having one.
As in other states across the country, the abortion lobby has attacked this life-saving legislation and convinced a Fargo judge to proclaim that a “right” to abortion exists in the state constitution. This ruling jeopardizes every pro-life law in North Dakota. By passing Measure 1, we can guarantee that the common sense, life-saving legislation will be safe from activist judges.

Like we did in Albuquerque, NM last fall, pro-life high school and college students from around the country will be joining together in North Dakota October 31st – November 2nd to show the nation that we are the pro-life generation. And our help is desperately needed to make phone calls, knock on doors, visit churches, distribute flyers, and more. The vast majority of Americans and people of North Dakota support the type of live-saving legislation that this amendment will protect, but pro-lifers will need to have an outstanding ground game to secure victory as Planned Parenthood and their allies are already there spending millions to ensure this amendment doesn’t pass. If the abortion lobby succeeds, they will be able to usher in abortion-on-demand in North Dakota.
Dates: Students for Life of America team members will be driving vans from Wisconsin, Minnesota, and South Dakota into the Red River Valley area (Fargo/Grand Forks) on Friday, October 31st and will be returning on the evening of Sunday, November 2nd (exact times and locations TBD).
Travel and lodging: We can also help with travel and lodging for students traveling within North Dakota to meet our team.
Contact Info: If you don’t live near one of our pick-up areas and would still like to join us in North Dakota, email Brendan O’Morchoe at [email protected] to see if we can make arrangements for you to join us.
If it’s possible, we’d love if you can join us to stand in solidarity with local and national pro-lifers. If not, please keep our efforts in your prayers!
Winning this vote will protect women and pre-born babies from the abortion industry. We know that laws like the admitting privileges bill, informed consent and parental notification save lives. And with Measure 1, the pro-life movement will be able to pass even more common-sense, life-saving legislation in North Dakota to protect women and their preborn babies.
We will #Stand4Life for the preborn babies and their mothers in North Dakota!
