Judge Temporarily Blocks Kentucky Abortion Law

A U.S. district judge has temporarily blocked a Kentucky law that prohibits most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy and requires an in-person doctor's visit before obtaining a chemical abortion. Earlier this month, the Kentucky legislature overrode Democratic governor Andy Beshear's veto to enact the law. The judge didn't rule on the specifics of the law but focused rather on the fact that Kentucky's two abortion clinics claimed that the law's lack of guidelines made it impossible to comply with. She said her decision does not preclude Kentucky from developing those guidelines and then beginning to enforce the law again. Both clinics had temporarily halted abortion procedures because they weren't able to comply with the law, and both said that they will resume abortions in the interim. <B><a href="https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/judge-temporarily-blocks-kentuckys-new-pro-life-law/">Read more...</A></B></p>
