BISMARCK – North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple said he signed three anti-abortion bills into law Tuesday to help “a legitimate attempt by a state legislature to discover the boundaries of Roe v. Wade.”

“These bills represent an additional restriction beyond what the Supreme Court has already ruled, which was they feel abortions beyond 24 weeks gestation can be outlawed,” he said in an interview Tuesday. “The question becomes, would they consider a further restriction or two? In the end, there’s only one source that can answer that question, and that’s our federal courts.”
