North Dakota heartbeat law bans abortion at six weeks

Bill: HB1456 (PDF)

Sponsored by Reps. Grande, Brabrandt, et al., and signed into law in 2013 by Gov. Jack Dalrymple, HB1456 states that “an individual may not perform an abortion on a pregnant woman before determining, in accordance with standard medical practice, if the unborn child the pregnant woman is carrying has a detectable heartbeat.” Abortionists who violate the law will be guilty of a class C felony. Exception includes an abortion to save the life of the mother.
