Reproductive rights group challenged North Dakota abortion law
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On July 18, 2011, the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) filed a complaint against a North Dakota law [PDF] that highly restricted non-surgical abortions by banning certain drugs that induce first trimester abortions.

The CRR also claimed that the law was vague and an improper delegation of legislative authority. The North Dakota court responded by issuing a preliminary injunction that prevented the law from going into effect.
