A Utah judge issued a temporary restraining order Monday, June 27, banning Utah's new abortion law from taking effect. The restraining order lasts for fourteen days. Planned Parenthood of Utah requested the restraining order while its lawsuit is considered in the courts. In the lawsuit, Planned Parenthood Association of Utah claims Utah’s "trigger" abortion law violates the Utah Constitution.
The U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade Friday, June 24. The ruling revokes the constitutional right to an abortion that has been in place for nearly fifty years. Now, it is up to states to determine abortion rights.
