(Worthy News) - The American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood filed a federal lawsuit challenging an Alabama law that effectively outlaws all abortions, the two groups announced Friday.
The lawsuit, filed in federal district court on behalf of abortion providers in the state, argues the “extreme” law is unconstitutional and stands in direct conflict with Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case that established a woman’s right to an abortion.
The groups are asking the court to block the law from taking effect. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
