surgical instruments 1A North Dakota lawmaker has introduced pro-life legislation that is drawing attention for its promise to punish abortion doctors with a criminal record.

Jeff Hoverson, the District 3 state representative and a pastor, tells One News Now one of his bills addresses the medical bills that pile up after bringing a child into the world.

“If that passes,” he says, “the state would fund the delivery of the baby. And also if she chooses to adopt to a couple that is married, that is opposite gender, mother and father, then we would pay for that, too.”

The second state law Hoverson is proposing more directly addresses abortion: The abortionist, and anyone who assists him or her, would be guilty of a felony.

“Too radical for some, I think,” the state rep acknowledges, “but we feel after 45 years that we need out-of-the-box thinking.

Women undergoing the abortion would not face punishment.

Even among pro-life groups, there are mixed views of that bill.

Hoverson, who is a father of six, also wants state legislation that would nullify Roe v Wade or exempt the ruling from applying to North Dakota.

The legislator points out that Colorado, for example, legalized marijuana despite federal laws. If a state can legalize pot, he reasons, why not save unborn babies?
