A nurse in the Flathead Valley will ask a Montana district court Thursday to suspend a state law that limits who can and cannot perform abortions. She’s being represented by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Only physicians and physicians assistants can legally perform abortions in Montana. It's a felony for others to perform the procedure.

Montana State University-Northern has resolved a discrimination complaint filed last year by a Native American student group.

The Havre-based university and the Sweetgrass Society student group signed on to the agreement, which settles the complaint alleging racial discrimination and First Amendment violations at the school.

The American Civil Liberties Union is challenging a Montana state law that limits who can perform abortions. The lawsuit filed in state court Tuesday says current law violates patients’ equal protection rights to choose an abortion health care provider.

Montana law allows only physicians and physicians assistants to perform abortions.
