The North Dakota Supreme Court recognizes a “Right to Abortion” in Wrigley v. Romanick

by | Mar 17, 2023

Editor’s note. Yesterday the North Dakota Supreme Court  rejected Attorney General Drew Wrigley’s request to remove a preliminary injunction that prevented the state’s trigger law from taking effect.

North Dakota Right to Life Executive Director McKenzie McCoy issued this response.

North Dakota Right to Life is shocked and deeply disappointed to hear the North Dakota Supreme Court is considering manufacturing a fictitious right to murder unborn babies. In Wrigley v. Romanick, three judges (a potential majority) opened the door to establish a non-existent right to abortion beyond medically necessary care. This decision undermines the power that the United States Supreme Court gave our state legislature in Dobbs v Jackson. The North Dakota Supreme Court is demonstrating an unacceptable disregard for the will of the people and our republic.

It seems that the ND Supreme Court has decided to start legislating “from the bench” instead of listening to the people. We fully support Attorney General Drew Wrigley and our Pro-life lawmakers as they work to review the opinion and find an effective solution that will best resolve the concerns raised by the court and offer to assist in any way possible.

We will continue to fight for the rights of the unborn in North Dakota. We recognize that every life is precious and worth protecting.
