The law would have been the most extreme anti-abortion restriction in the country.

Abortion Rights Groups Sue 3 More States As Trump Inauguration Nears

Planned ParentohoodAs they prepare for a potentially massive threat to abortion access under the Donald Trump administration, Planned Parenthood and two of its allies on Wednesday announced a slew of new legal battles against abortion restrictions in Missouri, Alaska and North Carolina.

The three lawsuits, filed jointly by Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights and the American Civil Liberties Union, aim to overturn state laws that make it difficult for women to exercise their constitutional right to abortion. The groups are challenging an Alaska law that prohibits outpatient centers from providing abortions in the first trimester; a North Carolina law that bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy except in dire medical emergencies and a pair of Missouri laws that require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a local hospital and all abortions to take place in ambulatory surgical centers, which are essentially mini-hospitals.

In addition to being unconstitutional, the laws are “medically unnecessary, deceptive, and they take away women’s basic dignity and autonomy,” Julie Rikelman, a lead attorney at the Center for Reproductive Rights, told reporters.
