North Dakota: The "Freest" State that Just Banned Abortion
This anti-choice law is so extreme that if it goes into effect, it will ban abortion before many women even know they're pregnant.
Ironically, Mother Jones reports that North Dakota was ranked number one in the Mercatus Center's annual report "Freedom in the 50 States:"
"The Center's rankings are quite thorough--you can see where each stands based on dozens of variables, including taxation, tort reform, fireworks laws, same-sex partnerships, happy hour regulations, the legality of raw milk, and whether or not the state bans salvia."
One thing is missing from the report: reproductive rights!
