LETTER: Expect litigation, more litigation on Measure 1

I found the Forum News Service story, “ND personhood amendment backers respond to

end-of-life-claims,” incredibly helpful, and it sealed my vote on Measure 1.

The story showed me that lawyers on both sides of the issue have their own opinions on how Measure 1 would impact North Dakotans if it were placed in our constitution. Holy smokes! It is not even a law yet, and the attorneys are lining up to take a swing at it.

You’ve heard the joke, “What’s the difference between a good lawyer and a bad lawyer? A bad lawyer makes your case drag on for years. A good lawyer makes it last even longer.” I see years of court and litigation if Measure 1 passes.

I will be voting no on Measure 1 because it is clearly bad for North Dakota.
