Injunction Issued Against New Abortion Law
Monday's order extends an October ruling from Circuit Judge Charles Atwell. The judge says he issued the preliminary injunction to give himself more time to consider the complex issues raised by the new law. He did not set a deadline for a final ruling. Last month, Atwell said the law likely violated constitutional rights to free speech and due process. He also said it could cause irreparable harm to Planned Parenthood and its patients.
