(Worthy News) – ’s near-total ban on abortions has been temporarily suspended pending a final decision on whether it violates the state’s constitution.

Monroe County Circuit Court judge Kelsey Hanlon on Thursday issued a preliminary injunction requested by a coalition of local providers, and the ACLU in a suit against several state officials. The injunction suspended enforcement of a law, passed in August, which criminalized abortions in Indiana with limited exceptions for rape, incest and serious risks of harm to expectant mothers.

The law would subject abortion providers who do not comply with its rules to fines of up to $10,000 and felony charges, under which they could be imprisoned for up to six years. [ Source: Courthouse News (Read More…) ]
