North Dakota Senate Passes Measure Threatening Abortion Access

by

State senators in North Dakota have passed a measure critics fear could end abortion in the state.

The bill requires doctors at the state’s only abortion clinic to obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital, a step that can be impossible for abortion providers. Alabama Republicans have advanced a similar bill, while yet another parallel measure enacted in Mississippi is threatening to close that state’s only remaining clinic.
