North Dakota Admitting Privileges Law (SB 2305)
This law was last updated on Sep 27, 2013
SB 2305 requires that physicians who perform abortions be licensed in the state of North Dakota and imposes a medically unwarranted requirement that physicians have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
Physicians who fail to comply with the admitting privileges requirement could be prosecuted for a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to a year in prison and a $3,000 fine.
The bill amends North Dakota Century Code § 14-02.1-04.
This bill was temporarily blocked by a federal court pending resolution of the litigation. (See MKB Management Corp. v. Burdick (2011).)
