In raising questions about the law, they argued that it makes it difficult for people to abort babies with down syndrome.

That's because it bans abortions after 20 weeks. Often pregnant women don't find out until after 20 weeks that their baby has down syndrome.

"While some genetic conditions, such as Down syndrome, can be detected with amniocentesis at 16 to 22 weeks, even then it can take two weeks to get results," they write.
"Add specialists, research and time to reflect, and a 20-week ban forces women and couples to make heart-rending decisions against a ticking clock."
