North Dakota won't enforce new abortion law until judge issues ruling

Grand Forks Herald - 07-15


BISMARCK — The state of North Dakota has agreed to not enforce a new abortion law until a federal judge rules on a request from challengers. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland agreed Friday, July 12, to prevent the state from requiring that physicians inform patients it may be possible to reverse a drug-induced abortion until he rules on a preliminary injunction requested by the challengers. The law is set to go into effect Aug. 1.
