A Dakotas-based health care system has granted hospital-admitting privileges to doctors at North Dakota's sole abortion provider, bringing the Fargo clinic in compliance with a new state law.
Sanford Health says physicians at the Red River Women's Clinic are credentialed at its hospital in Fargo.
The abortion clinic announced this week that it had entered into settlement talks with the state on a lawsuit over a new law requiring doctors who perform abortions to obtain hospital-admitting privileges.
Opponents had said the law would effectively make abortions illegal in North Dakota, fearing such credentials would nearly impossible to obtain.
