Utah judge temporarily halts Utah's new abortion ban
Abortion Laws

Utah’s abortion law went into effect Friday evening, less than a day after the U.S Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe V. Wade. The new Utah law says abortions in Utah are only legal if the mother's life is at risk, if the pregnancy was a result of rape or incest, or if its determined by physicians that the fetus has a severe defect.

Planned Parenthood's restraining order will temporarily allow abortions to continue as usual in Utah.

Sheri's career in radio began at 7 years old in Los Angeles, California with a secret little radio tucked under her bed that she'd fall asleep with, while listening to The Dr. Demento Radio Show. She went on to produce the first science radio show in Utah in 1999 and has been reporting local, national and international stories ever since. After a stint as news director at KZYX on northern California's Lost Coast, she landed back at UPR in 2021.
