Federal judge issues injunction against Missouri abortion laws

A federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction that the prohibits enforcement of abortion-related laws in Missouri.

U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs in Kansas City, Mo., on April 4 granted a motion by Planned Parenthood to block longstanding laws requiring abortion doctors to have local hospital privileges and that abortion clinics be licensed as ambulatory surgical centers.

Sachs wrote in a memo, however, that he would give the state time to develop a plan to "collateral and unintended damage to standard medical regulations."

Last June, the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated those aspects of abortion regulation in Texas litigation. "Missouri has not complied with that decision," Sachs wrote.
