North Dakota Targets 'Roe v. Wade'

North Dakota Targets 'Roe v. Wade'
Camera Press/Redux

There’s one thing many supporters and opponents of abortion rights can agree on: North Dakota’s new law banning abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy flouts the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. The law, the strictest in the nation, bans the procedure after a heartbeat is detected in a fetus. Roe v. Wade allows terminations until a fetus is viable outside the womb.
