(Worthy News) – A federal appeals court ruled Thursday that Tennessee’s 48-hour waiting period before a woman can receive an is lawful and doesn’t violate her constitutional rights.

A 9-7 en banc ruling by the 6th U.S. Circuit found that requiring women to wait 48 hours before getting an abortion did not create an undue burden on the ability to obtain the procedure.

“Before making life’s big decisions, it is often wise to take time to reflect. The people of Tennessee believed that having an abortion was one of those decisions,” Judge Amul Thapar, a appointee, wrote for the majority. “Tennessee’s waiting-period law is not a substantial obstacle to abortion.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
