Last month Governor Jack Dalrymple signed a handful of bills which makes North Dakota the most restrictive state in the nation to receive an abortion.
These people are celebrating.
Instead of rallying on the front steps of the state capitol, this afternoon more than 1,000 people gather to say "thank you."
<< People from all over North Dakota come together at the State Capitol in Bismarck to show their appreciation to governor Jack Dalrymple and North Dakota legislators.
"I have grown up in a generation where abortion has always been legal and I think I think abortion hurts women and that women deserve better," Eleri Kerian from Grafton, North Dakota said.
"We just wanted to be part of the people that want to stand up for the unborn and I think there are more people in North Dakota who are pro life and we just wanted to be supportive of the governor in signing the bills," Maureen Kautzman from Hettinger, North Dakota said.
Reverend Frank Pavone, a nationally known Catholic Priest, spoke to the hundreds of Pro-lifers. The large group showed their support for the controversial legislation.
Many of those gathering on the steps of the capitol, have been waiting years for laws like this to be made in North Dakota.
"We've been waiting 40 years, 40 years of people praying and fasting and waiting for God to shine the light and turn this around," Sharon Maulding from Jamestown, North Dakota said..
"I know that this is something most North Dakotans believe in and are passionate about," Kerian said.
"Because we support life for everyone, born and unborn," Gladys Keily from Tappen, North Dakota said.
Hoping North Dakota's voice for the unborn, is heard across the country.>>
