Bloomberg Law: Kentucky Abortion Law Invalid, Two New Provider Suits SayApril 14, 2022
Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued Kentucky over a new law that effectively bans abortions in the state. The new law, named HB 3, bans abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy and is modeled after the Mississippi law that is currently under review by the US Supreme Court. The complaint states that the law is unconstitutional “based on US Supreme Court precedent that gives people the right to end a pregnancy before a fetus would be able to live outside the womb.” The ACLU’s challenge is on behalf of Louisville’s EMW Women’s Surgical Center, which is also represented by O’Melveny & Myers LLP.
