The state is weighing its options on what to do next in the court battle over the new pre-abortion screening and counselling bill that’s on hold because of a temporary injunction. Attorney General Jon Bruning told us that the bill undoubtedly is not perfect.
“Ya know ya’ always worry about constitutional challenges to any bill, but this one certainly has its issues, and we’re trying to decide whether it’s best to fight about this particular bill and the language that’s in it or if it’s best to go back to the drawing board.”
Bruning says he believes in the concept of warning of risks. Bruning says he wasn’t there when the bill was written…He says other folks helped Senator Dierks write the bill, which isn’t unusual. Bruning says they have to determine now how much in state resources they want to spend versus how likely they are to win the case.
