FEDERAL JUDGE EXTENDS TEMPORARY INJUNCTION AGAINST ENFORCEMENT OF INSPECTION AND LICENSURE OF 3 ABORTION FACILITIES
INFORMED CONSENT, WAITING PERIOD, HOSPITAL ADMITTING PRIVILEGES REMAIN IN EFFECT
Attorneys for 3 TN abortion centers argued this morning (Thursday, July 9) in federal district court that enforcement of the new state law mandating basic health and safety standards at abortion facilities would require "partial demolition" of their abortion facilities and a cost of "twenty to forty thousand dollars" at each location to bring their businesses up to standard. Pro-abortion lawyer Scott Tift urged federal judge Kevin Sharp to provide "protection from closing their business."
Tift claimed that the licensure statute could cause "irreparable harm" to abortion owners and called the pro-life law "disruptive, expensive and burdensome."
