Appeals court blocks strict Tennessee abortion law

Appeals court blocks Tennessee strict abortion lawA federal appeals court on Friday blocked Tennessee's strict abortion law, more than a year after a district court first issued a preliminary injunction that prevented it from taking effect.

In July last year, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed one of the tightest abortion restrictions in the country, including banning the procedure once a fetal heartbeat is detected at around six weeks, which is often before a woman realizes she is pregnant.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday agreed with the district court's ruling that prohibited enforcement of the law's provisions, saying they are "constitutionally unsound."

"Although this circuit’s recent—and alarming—decisions have broadened the extent to which the government may impede a person's constitutional right to choose whether to carry a pregnancy to term, the law remains clear that if a regulation is a substantial obstacle to a woman seeking an abortion, it is invalid," the court said in the ruling.
