(Bismarck, ND) -- National pro-life and anti-abortion group is thanking the NDGOP after the party voted against approving a resolution that would criminalize abortion seekers.

The non-binding resolution presented at the party's convention this weekend would have labeled women as "co-conspirators" in their own abortions, and was the only one voted down of the 15 presented to delegates. In response, the Susan B. Anthony Pro Life America group thanked the party members, saying they oppose movements that criminalize women, even in non-binding resolutions. 

“We thank North Dakota GOP delegates for representing the pro-life movement in voting down this harmful resolution," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, the President of the Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America movement. "Together, we will oppose any effort to criminalize women – even non-binding resolutions. We celebrate that in the very few states where this kind of legislation has been filed not a single bill punishing women has advanced. As many women face abortion coercion, a culture that lies to them about the humanity of their unborn children, and a predatory abortion industry profiting off of lives and women’s suffering, we must provide more support to mothers, not condemnation.”
