Concerned Women for America: Center for Reproductive Rights is Aborting Safety in North Dakota

Blocking SB 2305 would endanger the women of North Dakota

Washington D.C. On Tuesday, May 14, just days after a Philadelphia jury found abortionist Kermit Gosnell guilty of the murder of three newborn children and the negligent death of a patient, the Center for Reproductive Rights filed a motion in Court on behalf of the Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo to block implementation of SB2305, which requires that abortionists have local hospital admitting privileges. The center also stated its intention to file suit against other laws passed this last Legislative Session. Concerned Women for America CEO and President, Penny Nance, responds:

“After Kermit Gosnell, I find it outrageous that the Center for Reproductive Rights would even question the need for stricter regulations in America’s abortion clinics. Wake-up.”

Concerned Women for America North Dakota State Director, Janne Myrdal, says in the statement below that the Red River Abortion facility will fail to adequately protect women should SB 2305 not be implemented:

“If there ever was a ‘War on Women’, the Red River Abortion Clinic is the one waging it. Concerned Women for America strongly supports SB 2305, a law protecting women and assuring continuous medical care for women across the state. The fact that the Red River abortion facility, under the leadership of Ms. Tammi Kromenaker, opposes requiring physicians to have hospital privileges that would assure protection of the health and safety of women undergoing abortions at their facility shows their blatant disregard for women’s health care in North Dakota. But again, the abortion industry shows its true colors. They care for the bottom line, not for the health of women and certainly not the unborn child.

“The next law that the Center for Reproductive Rights is seeking to file suit against is the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act, a law that protects against gender selection abortions and abortions based on conditions like Down syndrome. So the same clinic that states they are in the business to protect women fights a law to end the extermination of baby girls in the womb during sex selective abortions. Again, the utter disregard for the value of life expressed by the Red River Clinic should make one shudder.”
