FEDERAL JUDGE BLOCKS MISSOURI ABORTION RESTRICTIONS
U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs on April 19 issued an injunction blocking Missouri from enforcing two state laws imposing tight restrictions on the operation of abortion clinics. In doing so, Sachs said the Missouri restrictions violate a 2016 U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down similar Texas laws.
