In Montana, a court rebuffed one abortion restriction, but the governor quickly signed others into law. In Maryland, the governor signed protection for access. Those are among the latest developments in the sprawling saga of abortion law in the aftermath of last year’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade and nationwide access to abortions. Most Republican states have imposed bans or restrictions, but some have run afoul of courts. Most Democratic-dominated states have tried to bolster access. Meanwhile, Republicans who now have veto-proof majorities in both chambers of the North Carolina Legislature have begun pushing a less stringent ban than other states have adopted.
