TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge said Thursday that he will temporarily block a 15-week ban on abortions in his state, but his bench ruling won’t take effect before the ban becomes law Friday — an issue that could cause confusion for patients as well as abortion providers.
Meanwhile, a Kentucky judge temporarily blocked that state’s near-total ban on abortions, allowing the procedures to resume after they were abruptly stopped when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last week.
The cases in Florida and Kentucky reflect battles being waged in courts across the country after the Supreme Court said abortion was no longer protected under the federal constitution. The high court left it up to states to decide whether abortion is legal within their borders — forcing attorneys on both sides of the debate to turn to their state constitutions.

Well, innocent babies are being killed again.
Judicial activism at the Federal level being replaced by judicial activism at the state level.
The Judges are taking over
I’m getting so tired of these a-hole political judges and their dictates from the bench based on their politics and not the law. They are going to be as much at fault if we move into a hot revolution as the lying MSM.
Chief Justice Roberts needs to get his branch of government under control.
“...This is not what SCOTUS meant...”
Yes, that is exactly what they meant.
It is not a federal issue, it is a State issue.
Hey stupid that’s a rubber belly
I think the argument is over whether the state constitution’s right to privacy includes the decision to have an abortion. I believe one judge has already said it did not.
Geeze...that one must have used a turkey baster.No man would want to get within two time zones of that!
Tossing the issue to the states means that the legislatures will have to craft law with great care. And the ones that have already passed trigger laws will now need to tell the courts that they have the right of way.
You don’t really think Roberts is running the court, do you?
I don’t think she’s a human. You have to be at least 55 years old to be human because... ya know.. science. And Putin, and, and, white supremacy. Maybe the metric system. /libtard logic
NOT YET HUMAN
She may have a point...
These women certainly don’t show any signs of it.
Those pictures should be posted on every abortion thread.
It really drives home how devoid of logic and morality the pro-abortion on demand argument is.
You either get the ones like this woman, or you get the
good looking girl who can’t string two sentences together.
My body, my choice used to carry some weight until COVID.
Sorry dear, that phrase has been executed by all your
friends on the Left.
Democratic judges will be doing this all across the country. the democrats will stand in the way of the inevitable, allowing the states to take over like it says in the 10th Amendment until they are stopped.
Justice Roberts has a vote in determining whether to accept an appeal from a state court; he has no other authority over them.
