North Dakota AG: Fargo abortion clinic must close July 28

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s attorney general says the state’s sole abortion clinic must shut down at the end of July, at which time patients will likely head across the Red River to neighboring Moorhead, Minnesota. Attorney General Drew Wrigley says the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last week that gives each state the right on whether to allow abortions means that the procedure will be outlawed in the state on July 28. He delivered his certification letter to the legislative council’s office Tuesday morning. Tammi Kromenaker, owner and operator of the Red River Women’s Clinic, plans to move the clinic from Fargo to Moorhead. A GoFundMe page meant to help with the move had raised more than $760,000 as of Tuesday morning.
