This case challenges S.B. 174, a law that bans and criminalizes almost all abortions in Utah with only 3 very narrow exceptions. S.B. 174, originally passed in 2020, went into effect on June 24, 2022, after the U.S. Supreme Court reversed Roe v. Wade. Alongside Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and Zimmerman Booher, the ACLU of Utah has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Planned Parenthood Association of Utah in state district court arguing that this law violates several rights guaranteed by the Utah Constitution.
