Governor Dalrymple Signs All Three Abortion Bills

Posted:

Governor Jack Dalrymple signs all three abortion related bills this morning.

His office provided a press release that states he has signed HB 1305, HB 1456 and SB 2305. The release is directed to North Dakota House and Senate presiding officers.

HB 1305 would ban abortions performed solely for purposes of gender selection and genetic abnormalities.

HB 1456 would ban abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. Dalrymple explains that he views this as "a legitimate attempt by a state legislature to discover the boundaries of Roe v. Wade." He asks the legislature to appropriate money to potential litigation.

SB 2305 requires admitting and staff privileges at a nearby hospital for any physician who performs abortions in North Dakota. He states he believes this measure will also face a court challenge, but says he considers it a legitimate and new question for the courts.

No further comment is available and a call to the governors office has not been returned.
