Abortion Ban Takes Effect in Tennessee

Tuesday, 28 June 2022 01:45 PM EDT

A federal court Tuesday allowed Tennessee to ban abortions as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals allowed a six-week ban to take effect at the state's request.

An even more restrictive ban, prohibiting nearly all abortions, is set to take effect in a month. Both measures would make performing an abortion a felony and subject doctors to up to 15 years in prison.
