Two Steps Back, One Step Forward

Isn't that part of the Trump doctrine? Two for one?
A federal judge has blocked an Indiana state law requiring women to undergo an ultrasound at least 18 hours before having an abortion, finding that it creates "clearly undue" burdens on women and is unconstitutional.

In July, then-Governor Mike Pence, who is now US vice president, enacted the mandate when he signed House Enrolled Act No. 1337. Days later, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit on behalf of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) against Indiana's Department of Health and other local officials.

On Friday, US District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt ruled with Planned Parenthood, granting a preliminary injunction that temporarily blocks the mandate.

...but hey, do what you want...you will anyway.
