Lawsuit Filed over New ND Abortion Law

Posted: Updated:

The move by state lawmakers and Gov. Jack Dalrymple to make North Dakota the most restrictive state in the country for abortion is facing its first legal challenge of 2013.

An abortions rights group says it filed a lawsuit Wednesday morning challenging a law that requires doctors who perform abortions to obtain hospital-admitting privileges. Officials with the state's lone abortion clinic, located in Fargo, say it's an unfair requirement and could make abortion illegal in North Dakota.

 Dalrymple signed four bills into law this past session that could spearhead the campaign to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 ruling that legalized abortion.

 Abortion rights activists say more lawsuits will be coming before the laws are scheduled to take effect Aug. 1.

Dalrymple was not immediately available for comment.
