BISMARCK, N.D. — The Libertarian Party of North Dakota came out against a right to life measure at a statewide meeting in Bismarck, and declared its support for a measure that would replace the state Board of Higher Education.
The party’s meeting kicks off its final campaign push prior to the Nov. 4 general election.
Measure 1 would place a single sentence in the state constitution stating that a right to life at all stages of development must be protected.
Libertarian Party officials in a statement said placing such language in law has failed in other states. They go on to declare Measure 1 a “radical change to the North Dakota Constitution” that gives human rights to fertilized eggs.
