[JURIST] US District Judge Karen Schreier Thursday granted a preliminary injunction blocking a controversial South Dakota law [text] passed in March [JURIST report] requiring abortion doctors to tell women that abortion ends the lives of "human beings", or face 30 days of jail time and a $200 fine. According to the judge, plaintiffs Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota [advocacy website] showed they had a good chance of prevailing over the state in court. According to the judge, the law's limitation on doctors' ability to express views opposed to the state's may be an unconstitutional violation of doctors' free speech. State lawyers defended the law, arguing the requirement is medically accurate and supported by science. A hearing on Planned Parenthood's request for a permanent injunction is set for October.
