Judge dismisses part of abortion lawsuit

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed part of a lawsuit challenging a new North Dakota law that blocks abortions on the grounds of genetic defect or unwanted gender.

The state's sole abortion clinic in Fargo filed the lawsuit in June challenging the law and another new measure that bans abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected.

The Red River Women's Clinic says the ban on abortions based on gender or genetic defects doesn't affect the clinic because it doesn't perform abortions for those reasons.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland on Monday granted the clinic's request to drop that part of the lawsuit.
