(Worthy News) - Last year, Republican Governor John Kasich signed a bill banning abortions based on a diagnosis of Down syndrome.
Now a federal fudge has blocked the new law in response to a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.
U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Black issued a preliminary injunction which would keep the law from going into effect this week.
In the injunction he writes,“The woman’s right to terminate her pregnancy before viability is the most central principle of Roe v. Wade. It is a rule of law and a component of liberty we [the United States Supreme Court] cannot renounce.” [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
