Federal judge blocks Indiana abortion ultrasound mandate

The Indiana law is not unique, in fact many other states have tried and failed to impose similar legislation.
It forced women to have an ultrasound at least 18 hours before an abortion; banned abortions when a fetal anomaly was detected; mandated the burial and cremation of miscarried or aborted remains; restricted fetal tissue donation; and required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital or to have an agreement with a doctor who does.
Pratt said that IN also failed to justify mandating that women make two separate trips to abortion clinics.
Rep. Diane Black, a Republican from Tennessee, introduced a bill that would cut off all funding for Planned Parenthood and its affiliates for one year unless they certify that they do not provide abortion. She added that the mandate "likely creates an undue burden on women's constitutional rights".
A federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction that the prohibits enforcement of abortion-related laws in Missouri.
Repealing the rule means state governments that object to Planned Parenthood can try to prevent the group from receiving Title X funds, directing the federal money to health programs they prefer.
"Effectively, this legislation will favor more conventional healthcare providers over unconventional providers when allocating public funds for women's health", Eichelberger said. He works as an Online Marketing Consultant for, providing web marketing services for clients in Albany, Goldsboro.
Cattle call: Heifers escape from St. Louis slaughterhouse Susie Coston, the director of Farm Sanctuary , a New York-based animal rescue organization said: 'It's just so incredibly sad. News 4 reported that a herd of cattle escaped from star packing company, located in the 3800 block of Cote Brilliante.
Pratt, who heard arguments on the case in November, found that the state had not presented "compelling evidence" to support its argument that the mandate would help convince pregnant women not to have an abortion. Prior to that, women still needed an ultrasound to have an abortion, but the time frame of when it needed to happen was not specified.
Planned Parenthood said in its lawsuit that under the state's earlier measure the group performed ultrasounds on women immediately prior to their abortions.
Pratt also found that "there is little to no concrete evidence" to support the state's argument that informed-consent waiting periods decrease the likelihood that a woman will go through with an abortion they already chose to have. "It's a major victory for Planned Parenthood", Ken Falk, legal director at ACLU in IN, told members of the media at a news conference on Monday.
American Civil Liberties Union of IN legal director Ken Falk says IN has 30 days to appeal the ruling.
The other day I grabbed my mail, and as I shuffled through it, I was surprised to see "Planned Parenthood" typed in hot pink in the top left-hand corner of one of the envelopes.
"To date, every court to consider the issue on the merits has ruled that state politicians can not block access to care at Planned Parenthood through the Title X family planning program", the organization said in a statement.
