A discredited "marriage therapist" who the state of North Dakota hired to testify in favor of anti-abortion legislation, may show up again, at the state taxpayer's expense.

Vincent Rue, a Florida marriage therapist known for his discredited theories about how abortion causes mental illness, has spoken in several states, including North Dakota, where he spoke about the "heartbeat bill," pulling in a fee of $19, 936.  (Source: Stand Up For Women ND Facebook page)

According to Mother Jones "North Dakota may soon offer another opportunity for a paycheck: The state has appealed a decision striking down a six-week abortion ban, which [Vincent] Rue helped defend, and the Legislature has provided the attorney general with $400,000 to fight for the law.

"A spokeswoman for North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem wouldn't say whether he would hire Rue to work on the appeal."
