Federal appeals court upholds Tennessee’s abortion waiting period

CWN Editor's Note: “Tennessee’s 48-hour abortion waiting period is facially constitutional,” the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a 9-7 decision. “The law is supported by a rational basis, and it is not a substantial obstacle to abortion for a large fraction of women seeking previability abortions in Tennessee.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
