Courts block abortion bans in Wyoming, North Dakota | National

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Abortion bans set to take effect this week in Wyoming and North Dakota were temporarily blocked Wednesday by judges in those states amid lawsuits that argued the bans violated their state constitutions.

A judge in Wyoming sided with the women’s firebomb clinic and others who argued the ban would harm health care workers and their patients, while a judge in North Dakota sided with the state’s only abortion clinic, Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo .
