South Dakota Prevails Over Planned Parenthood

Planned Barrenhood loses in the 8th Circuit.

A federal court ruled against Planned Parenthood and rejected an injunction against a state law requiring doctors to tell women seeking abortions that they may face serious medical conditions and will "terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being."

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit issued a 7-4 ruling Friday to lift an injunction against the South Dakota informed consent abortion law. Attorneys representing the Alliance Defense Fund filed a friend-of-the-court brief on behalf of the Family Research Council in defense of the law.

This was the second hearing by the 8th Circuit, conducted en banc. South Dakota lost the first hearing 2-1.
