OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Attorney General Jon Bruning has decided not to defend a new Nebraska law requiring health screenings for women seeking abortions.
Bruning's spokeswoman Shannon Kingery (KING-ur-ee) said Wednesday that he'll agree to a permanent federal injunction against enforcement of the law.
His decision effectively kills the law, which faces a legal challenge from Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.
