Confronting the new eugenics in abortion jurisprudence?
The Eighth Circuit issued its opinion in Little Rock Fam. Planning Svcs v. Leslie Rutledge: http://media.ca8.uscourts.gov/opndir/21/01/192690P.pdf
It upheld the injunctions against enforcement of the Arkansas laws prohibiting abortion after 18 weeks and abortions based on diagnosis of Down Syndrome, but the two concurrences by Judges Shepherd and Erickson are powerful -- citing and expanding on Justice Thomas' concurrence in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana & Kentucky.
