Wade.

Judge Giarrusso issued the temporary restraining order after one of the state's three abortion clinics, Hope Medical Group for Women, sued.

The clinic also contends that the vagueness surrounding the trigger bans has led to conflicting statements at local and state levels.

A hearing has been scheduled for July 8.

Reuters reports clinics in other states have taken similar measures.

On June 25, Planned Parenthood sued over Utah's trigger ban.

And abortion rights advocates in Ohio intend to challenge an abortion ban that took effect in the state on June 24.
