Judge makes ruling in Kentucky abortion law case
A judge has granted a temporary injunction which keeps abortion procedures legal in Kentucky for now.
The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit over the state's trigger law signed by former Gov. Matt Bevin, which immediately banned abortion in Kentucky after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
The organization wanted the judge to continue blocking the trigger law from going into effect while the lawsuit played out in court. Attorney General Daniel Cameron's office wanted the trigger law to take effect as the case was being decided.
Abortion will remain legal in Kentucky while the ACLU’s lawsuit over the state’s trigger law banning abortion is decided.
