Judge Blocks Nebraska’s New Abortion Screening Law : NPR

July 15

A judge has blocked a new Nebraska law requiring mental health screenings for women seeking abortions.

U.S. District Judge Laurie Smith Camp on Wednesday granted Planned Parenthood of the Heartland’s request for a preliminary injunction against the law, which was supposed to take effect Thursday. The injunction keeps the law from being enforced while the lawsuit is decided.

Planned Parenthood says the law could be difficult to comply with and require doctors to give information irrelevant to abortions.
