INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A federal judge weighing whether to block a new Indiana law banning abortions sought because of a fetus’ genetic abnormalities questioned whether that provision would infringe on some women&8217;s right to an abortion.
Planned Parenthood wants an injunction to stop the law from taking effect July 1, arguing that it&8217;s unconstitutional.
U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt said during Tuesday&8217;s hearing that the law cannot be “described as anything but a prohibition on the right to an abortion” and an infringement on women&8217;s privacy.
Indiana&8217;s new law also would prohibit abortions sought because of a fetus&8217; race or sex.
Pratt said she would rule before July 1.
