Resource: EMW Women's Surgical Center, P.S.C. v. Meier: Ban on Safe Abortion Procedure


October 6, 2021

In 2018, the ACLU and the ACLU of Kentucky filed suit on behalf of Kentucky abortion providers to challenge a state law banning physicians from providing a safe and medically proven abortion method called dilation and evacuation, or “D&E.” If it were to take effect, this law would prevent many patients from being able to obtain an abortion altogether. The law imposes serious harm on patients' health and dignity.
