"Judge, David J. Hale of the Western District of Kentucky, ruled the law was potentially unconstitutional. He halted enforcement for at least 14 days to “prevent irreparable harm” until he could hold a hearing."

Thank you judge!!

"“States can’t ban abortion. It has been well settled over 40 years ago in Roe v. Wade.” ~ Brigitte Amiri, deputy director of the A.C.L.U.’s Reproductive Freedom Project

It's a very positive development that another of the gop's illegal actions has been stymied, at least for now. Thanks for sharing, Freya.

These bills are a giant waste of taxpayer dollars. Gov. Begins is a giant waste of oxygen.
