Supporters testified Wednesday that Maryland is seeing a rising demand on its abortion clinics, including from women from out of state, since the U.S. Supreme Court stuck down Roe v.

New bill introduces world’s most extreme abortion buffer zone law to Scotland

The Catholic Church in Scotland has warned that a draft law concerning buffer zones around abortion clinics would “crush” freedom of expression and religion.

Judge ends key lawsuit against Kentucky’s near-total abortion ban

"A judge has officially dismissed a major lawsuit that aimed to overturn Kentucky’s trigger law — which outlaws practically all abortions — as well as the state’s ban on abortion after about six weeks of pregnancy. Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Mitch Perry issued the order Tuesday. His decision came after the plaintiffs, including Planned Parenthood and the ACLU of Kentucky, formally asked to drop the case last week.

The court’s justices ruled abortion providers — specifically, Planned Parenthood and EMW Women's Surgical Center in Louisville — lack the…
