The lawsuit is asking a federal court to strike down a law that requires only licensed doctors to perform abortions, which are considered surgical procedures in most cases. 

The lawsuit was filed Sept. 20 on behalf of Planned Parenthood, four nurses and an abortionist. It's also a legal challenge that could affect similar laws in 41 other states that restrict abortions to licensed doctors. 

Teresa Tumidajski of Maine Right to Life warns that striking down the law means nurse practitioners and nurse-midwives can perform abortions.

"And that's horrible for not only the health of Maine women," she says, "but obviously it kills the life of the innocent unborn child as well."

At a time when there should be an effort to improve women's health care, she adds, Planned Parenthood is chasing after profits.
