U.S. 8th Circuit Upholds South Dakota Abortion Statute
A lower court injunction serving Planned Parenthood’s interests is lifted. Doctors (not clinic activists) must give women a full range of warnings about post-abortion health risks, including increased risk of suicide.
The whole opinion is here.
U.S. District Court for the District of South Dakota - Sioux Falls
[PUBLISHED] [Gruender, Author, for the Court En Banc] Civil case - Abortion.
District court erred in granting a permanent
injunction enjoining a provision of a South Dakota statute requiring the
disclosure to patients seeking an abortion of an increased risk of suicide
ideation and suicide as the suicide advisory is non-misleading and
relevant to the patient’s decision to have an abortion; advisory does not
place an undue burden on abortion rights and is not a violation of
physicians’ free speech rights. Judge Loken, concurring. Judge Colloton,
concurring in part and concurring in the result. Judge Murphy, with
whom Wollman, Bye and Melloy join, dissenting.
