Judge Blocks Missouri From Enforcing Its 'Down Syndrome Abortion' Ban

A federal judge on Friday blocked a part of Missouri’s newly enacted abortion law banning “Down syndrome abortions” of non-viable fetuses.

Senior U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs had previously blocked the state’s ban of most pre-viability abortions. But he asked for further evidence of the number of women who would be affected by the Down syndrome prohibition.

The Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Louis, which sued to overturn the law, submitted evidence that the Down syndrome ban would affect a small number of women.

That, Sachs ruled, was sufficient to issue an injunction blocking the ban from taking effect while the state appeals.

1. There should be NO restrictions on abortion

If a woman doesn't want to be pregnant .... for ANY reason .... that's all it should take for her to exercise her right to have one.
