Religious Liberty Restoration Amendment
June 12, 2012 Primary Election Ballot

Purpose & Need Fact Sheet

Protect religious liberty in North Dakota from government mandates

What it is?

Measure 3 is a state constitutional amendment that restores a well-tested way of preserving religious liberty for all North Dakotans for future generations.


Measure 3 restores and preserves a person’s or organization’s religious liberty for our children and grandchildren, while respecting legitimate government interests as provided by our Founding Fathers.


Because our religious liberty is a treasured freedom on which America was founded, and now is being threatened and under attack, it is time to act.

Why now?

We can’t wait. As we see an administration (HHS), by government mandate, forcing religious organizations to provide contraceptives, sterilization drugs, and abortifacients in violation of sincerely held religious beliefs. These attacks are on our religious liberty. We need protection, and we need it now.

Religious Liberty Restoration Amendment

Government may not burden a person's or religious organization's religious liberty. The right to act or refuse to act in a manner motivated by a sincerely held religious belief may not be burdened unless the government proves it has a compelling governmental interest in infringing the specific act or refusal to act and has used the least restrictive means to further that interest. A burden includes indirect burdens such as withholding benefits, assessing penalties, or an exclusion from programs or access to facilities.
