Gender Justice Joins Lawsuit Against North Dakota Abortion Ban
Extreme anti-abortion politicians in the North Dakota legislature want to totally ban abortion across the state at all costs and will throw out the state’s constitution to do so.
To stop them, Gender Justice joined Red River Women’s Clinic v. Drew H. Wrigley—alongside The Center for Reproductive Rights, Gender Justice and Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP—to block an extreme new abortion ban in North Dakota.
Just six weeks prior to the new ban being signed into law, the North Dakota Supreme Court recognized that the North Dakota state constitution protects the right to obtain an abortion in life-saving and health-preserving cases.
Gender Justice’s lawsuit argues that the new legislation passed in 2023 is unconstitutional.
