    Kansas cannot enforce abortion pill law or impose 24-hour wait, judge rules – By Carter Sherman (The Guardian) / Oct 31, 2023

    Preliminary order before 2024 trial comes months after Kansans voted to protect abortion rights in state constitution

    Kansas cannot enforce laws that would force abortion patients to wait 24 hours for the procedure or be given anti-abortion talking points, a judge ruled on Monday.

    The move comes months after Kansans overwhelmingly voted to protect abortion rights in the state’s constitution.

    Judge K Christopher Jayaram’s preliminary injunction will freeze a host of abortion restrictions. Some of the restrictions date back to the 1990s, such as a law that requires abortion patients to wait 24 hours between an initial consultation and their procedure. Others were passed as recently as this year, such as a law that would have required abortion providers to indicate to patients that their pill-induced abortion could be “reversed” – a claim that is not backed up by science.
