North Dakota judge to decide on block of abortion ban

(Bismarck, ND)  --  A Burleigh County judge says he will make a decision soon regarding arguments over the state's abortion ban.  

Judge Bruce Romanick heard arguments yesterday in a lawsuit asking the court to block the abortion ban when the procedure is needed to preserve the health and life of a pregnant woman.  

The plaintiff argued that the ban violates the fundamental rights of pregnant women.
