State Can't Enforce Late-Abortion Ban

Nation IN BRIEF / WISCONSIN

November 04, 1998|From Times Wire Reports

Wisconsin was barred by a federal appeals court from enforcing its ban on a type of late-term abortion while the state and opponents of the law battle in court. The 3-2 ruling by the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago was a victory for Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and six physicians who challenged the new law. Jim Haney, spokesman for the Wisconsin attorney general, said the state had not decided how to respond to the ruling. The law bans so-called partial-birth abortions.
