Judges Temporarily Halt Kentucky and Florida Abortion Bans

HeadlineJul 01, 2022

A court in Kentucky has temporarily blocked the state’s so-called trigger law abortion ban from taking effect. Lawyers for Kentucky’s only two abortion providers are reviewing Thursday’s ruling to determine when the Louisville clinics can restart abortion care. In Florida, a judge has temporarily blocked a state law banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Lawmakers in Florida’s Republican-led state Legislature are reportedly planning to introduce even more restrictive anti-abortion bills in the coming weeks.
