Two N.D. abortion laws to take effect today

Email

BISMARCK - Two of North Dakota's four new laws to restrict abortions will take effect today.

One law says a woman will not be able to have an abortion more than 20 weeks into the pregnancy, which is when some say a fetus can feel pain. It is the only one of the four abortion laws passed by the Legislature this year not to face a legal challenge, though similar laws in other states are being challenged.
