Today the North Dakota state legislature passed a measure that would amend the state Constitution to define life as starting as conception, granting full personhood to fertilized eggs. The state House approved the measure in vote of 57-35. The state Senate already approved the measure in February. The measure will go before North Dakota voters in November 2014. It is the first time a Personhood measure has passed in a state legislature, instead of being added to a ballot through signature drives.
