North Dakota et al. v. Becerra et al.

Docket No.
District Court
North Dakota


  • Invalidate all or part of a federal regulation
  • Stop the government from enforcing the statute or regulation

Litigation Content

Why this Matters:

The plaintiffs allege that enforcing protections under the Affordable Care Act against discrimination in federally funded health care programs that would require performing or providing insurance coverage for services related to gender transition or abortion violate the Administrative Procedure Act, the First Amendment, the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the Spending Clause, the 10th Amendment, and the Eleventh Amendment. The Affordable Care Act’s anti-discrimination provisions protect marginalized groups, close health gaps, and ensure equitable access to health care services.

Potential Impact:

Eroding nondiscrimination protections for women and LGBTQI+ people would expose them to greater challenges in accessing needed services and exacerbate health disparities.
