Abortion Law Revisions Await Burgum’s Signature

(Bismarck, ND) — Proposed revisions of North Dakota’s abortion laws are awaiting signature from Governor Doug Burgum. The final revisions cleared the state Senate yesterday, sending them to Burgum’s desk. The legislation clears up language in the state’s 2007 trigger ban and 2013 “heartbeat bill.” New language would allow for the treatment of ectopic pregnancies and for abortions in the case of rape and incest before six weeks gestation. The trigger ban is on hold as a lawsuit works its way through the courts.
