North Dakota Appeals Federal District Court Ruling Overturning Early "Heartbeat" Abortion Ban

TIME:  North Dakota Pushes ‘Heartbeat’ Abortion Ban to Higher Court, by Dan Kedmey:

More than 60 North Dakota lawmakers demanded a higher court revisit an overturned state law that would have banned abortions on fetuses with a detectable heartbeat

North Dakota’s Attorney General will appeal a court’s decision to strike down a state law banning the vast majority of abortions.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland overturned the ban last month, calling the law “invalid and unconstitutional.” It would make abortions illegal from the time the fetus develops a heartbeat, which can often be detected six weeks into a pregnancy. . . .
