Planned Parenthood of St. Louis to defy state regulation – could lose license

Planned Parenthood of St. Louis to defy state regulation – could lose license The abortion clinic said Wednesday that it would no longer comply with state law that it conduct two pelvic exams on women seeking abortions . Beginning soon, doctors at the clinic said they would only conduct a pelvic exam at the time of the procedure, which is when they deem it medically relevant. The announcement came just two days before a judge-mandated deadline for the state's health department to make a final decision on whether to renew Planned Parenthood's abortion license. "We are choosing to provide the best quality, patient centered care that we've always provided at Planned Parenthood," said Dr.

A federal judge has grilled an attorney for the state of Indiana over whether the Legislature had legitimate reasons for approving a law that would ban a second - trimester abortion procedure . The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana is seeking a preliminary injunction blocking the restrictions

Judge Sarah Evans Barker on Friday granted the preliminary injunction soon after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to revive a similar Alabama law seeking to ban dilation and evacuation abortions. The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana sued on behalf of two doctors who perform such abortions.

The law passed by Indiana's Republican-dominated Legislature calls the procedure "dismemberment abortion." Indiana's attorneys called the procedure "brutal and inhumane."

During a recent court hearing, Barker questioned why the state would force women seeking an abortion to undergo "highly risky" alternative procedures, such as prematurely inducing labor or injecting fatal drugs into the fetus.

The law was set to take effect July 1.

Appeals court puts Trump abortion restrictions on hold again.
Trump administration rules that impose additional hurdles for low-income women seeking abortions are on hold once again. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco on Wednesday vacated a unanimous ruling from a three-judge panel and said a slate of 11 judges will reconsider lawsuits brought by more than 20 states and several civil rights and health organizations challenging the rules. The rules ban taxpayer-funded clinics from making abortion referrals and prohibit clinics that receive federal money from sharing office space with abortion providers.
