Federal Judge Agrees to Delay Lawsuit Against Enforcement of Pro-Life Laws

Citing a Texas case now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court, lower court Judge Kevin Sharp has agreed to a request made by both the state and pro-abortion lawyers asking that further action on the Tennessee lawsuit be delayed until after the nation's highest court rules on Texas laws which are "substantially similar" to Tennessee's pro-life laws. Those health and safety safeguards include informed consent and waiting period for women and girls considering abortion, state inspection and regulation of abortion facilities and the 2012 requirement that abortion providers hold admitting privileges at a local hospital.  Click here for more information about the court case.
