"On its face, the suicide advisory presents neither an undue burden on abortion rights nor a violation of physicians' free speech rights." So holds the majority in an en banc ruling that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit issued today, in overturning a permanent injunction that Planned Parenthood had obtained from a South Dakota-based federal district judge. The injunction had prohibited enforcement of a South Dakota statute requiring the disclosure to patients seeking abortions of an "increased risk of suicide ideation and suicide" among women who undergo the procedure.

The en banc court's vote in favor of upholding the South Dakota law and overturning the permanent injunction was 7-to-4.
