The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has vacated a previous ruling that allowed the Trump administration to impose additional restrictions on facilities that serve low-income women seeking abortions, according to The Associated Press.
The federal appeals court said Wednesday that a panel of 11 judges would reconsider the bevy of lawsuits filed by states and civil rights groups challenging the plans.
The article goes on to state the following:
The ruling was handed down just weeks after a three-judge panel in the 9th Circuit ruled that the government’s plan to ban federally funded family planning clinics from giving abortion referrals would be allowed to go into effect nationwide.
“Some major provisions of the overhaul were due to take effect in early May but halted in April by national injunctions ordered by lower federal courts in Oregon and Washington state, as well as a statewide injunction in California, after nearly two dozen states and providers including the American Medical Association and Planned Parenthood sued,” Politico reported.
The full 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it’d take up a fresh challenge to Trump’s overhaul of the federal family planning program.
