A North Dakota judge on Friday rejected a request to lift his stay on a law banning abortion pending a challenge to the law’s constitutionality.

Burleigh County District Judge Bruce Romanik rejected Attorney General Drew Wrigley’s argument that he had not adequately considered whether a Fargo abortion clinic would succeed in his case.

The Red River Women’s Clinic, the state’s only abortion clinic, argues that the state constitution grants abortion rights. Although it continues to make that claim, it closed its Fargo location in August and opened a clinic in neighboring Moorhead, Minnesota, where abortion is legal.
