Planned Parenthood Association of Utah v. State of Utah

On June 25, 2022, Planned Parenthood Association of Utah (PPAU) filed a lawsuit challenging the state of Utah's abortion ban. 

The case challenges S.B. 174, a law that bans and criminalizes almost all abortions in Utah with only three narrow exceptions. S.B. 174, originally passed in 2020, went into effect on June 24, 2022, after SCOTUS reversed Roe v. Wade. The case argues the law violates several rights guaranteed by the Utah Constitution. PPAU is represented by attorneys from  Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), Zimmerman Booher, and the ACLU of Utah.

On Monday, June 27, a Utah court judge granted a temporary restraining order, allowing abortion services to resume in Utah. On Monday, July 11, the judge granted a preliminary injunction which means abortion services will remain available while the litigation over the ban in Utah state court proceeds
