House Passes Amendment to Abortion Bill | VideoJessica Roose | 3/21/2013
Opponents argued that the amendment would restrict research on topics that include sex education and teen pregnancy.
But supporters say that`s not the case.
"It does not prohibit funds to be spent in sex education and family planning. It only restricts with whom the state can partner," said Representative Peter Silbernagel (R) from Casselton.
"Allow our faculty and researchers to continue identifying solutions to the economic and environmental, medical and societal problems our state faces," said Representative Joshua Boschee (D) from Fargo.
The amendment passed with 57 votes.
