This is a challenge to the constitutionality of House Enrolled Act 1211, which would have the effect of banning dilation and evacuation abortions, which is the abortion procedure used in the majority of abortions performed after the early part of the second trimester. The law was scheduled to go into effect on July 1, 2019. The Court granted a preliminary injunction on June 28, 2019, preventing the law from going into effect. The State has not appealed the grant of the preliminary injunction, so the case will proceed.
