ACLU Files Federal Lawsuit Against Kentucky Bill

Posted: Updated:
Kentucky -

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a federal lawsuit to block a new Kentucky law putting more restrictions on abortions.

The ACLU filed the suit late Tuesday, shortly after Governor Bevin signed the measure, which took effect immediately. The law bans a common second trimester abortion procedure known as "Dilation and evacuation."  The ACLU says the law disregards a woman's private medical decisions "In favor of a narrow, ideological agenda."
 
Through a spokesperson, Bevin has called the lawsuit, disturbing.
