Resource: EMW Women's Surgical Center v. Meier: Six-Week Ban And Reason Ban


December 17, 2021

In 2019, the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Kentucky filed a lawsuit to challenge two new Kentucky laws. One law is a ban on abortion at 6-weeks in pregnancy, and the other law would ban abortion based on the specific reasons for the person’s decision, such as a fetal diagnosis. Both laws are unconstitutional bans on abortion, and they intrude into the personal health decisions of women and families.
