North Dakota Legislature Approves 6-Week Abortion Ban

Not to be outdone by Arkansas. . . .

The New York Times: Bill in North Dakota Bans Abortion After Heartbeat Is Found, by Erik Eckholm:

Little more than a week after Arkansas adopted the country’s most stringent abortion limits, banning the procedure at 12 weeks ofpregnancy, the North Dakota Legislature on Friday passed a more restrictive bill that would ban most abortions as early as 6 weeks into pregnancy.

The Legislature, which is dominated by Republicans, also passed a second measure that would ban abortions sought because of a genetic abnormality or to select the sex of the child. . . .


For my take on how bans like this reflect a divide within the movement, see: Roe v. Wade's 40th Anniversary: A Moment of Truth for the Anti-Abortion-Rights Movement?
