Judge Halts Enforcement of South Dakota Abortion Law

By Kevin Fayle on July 08, 2011 10:47 AM

A federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction preventing enforcement of South Dakota's strict new abortion law while courts decide the constitutionality of the new statute. The law imposes a three-day waiting period before a woman may obtain an abortion and requires women to undergo counseling at a "pregnancy help center" that advises against abortions. The judge found that the challengers to the law had sufficiently demonstrated that the law likely violated the constitution, which warranted a preliminary injunction preventing the law from going into effect.
