Legal counsel for North Dakota’s sole abortion clinic has filed suit against Cass County and the state over one of four anti-abortion measures recently passed by the Legislature, with the intent of challenging two more.
A Philadelphia abortion doctor was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder and could face execution in the deaths of three babies who authorities say were delivered alive and then killed with scissors at his grimy clinic, in a case that became a flashpoint in the nation's debate over abortion.
For weeks, jurors in Philadelphia heard grim testimony about deaths and squalor at Dr. Kermit Gosnell's inner-city abortion clinic. While they listened, the murder case reverberated far beyond the courtroom, changing — at least for the moment — the tone of the national debate on abortion.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem rightly expressed great concern that the Legislature should provide an appropriation to defend anti-abortion legislation that will unquestionably be challenged in the courts.
A doctor testifying in a trial challenging a North Dakota law that opponents argue would end drug-induced abortions said Wednesday it's very common to prescribe drugs for purposes other than what's printed on their final label.
Creative minds in the North Dakota Attorney General’s Office shouldn’t have a problem coming up with funds for litigation of anti-reproductive justice legislation. Liberty Counsel has already offered legal help to defend the laws.
