D&X Abortions to Continue in Alaska

Alaska Superior Court Judge John Reese issued a temporary injunction blocking a ban on D&X abortions late Wednesday, July 30. The ban was scheduled to go into effect the following day, but a group of abortion rights supporters sued last week to overturn it, arguing that the statute violated women’s privacy rights. A law requiring that girls under 17 obtain parental permission before getting an abortion remained scheduled to go into effect Thursday, July 31.
