A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order on Friday preventing state officials from enforcing Kentucky's newly passed fetal heartbeat abortion law.
The bill, passed with an emergency declaration attached, would have been set to take effect immediately upon receiving a signature by the governor. Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed the bill into law on Friday after issuing a statement condemning the proposed challenges.
