(WDAY TV) -- North Dakotan Democrats are getting support from a handful of Republicans, in an effort to set aside money to fight court battles.

It comes after state lawmakers passed strict anti-abortion measures. So far the idea of setting aside money for litigation has been shunned. Many Democratic lawmakers call it irresponsible.

Even Republican Governor Jack Dalrymple asked the legislature to set aside money, saying without it, enacting the stringent laws could backfire.
