A new Missouri ban on abortions at or after eight weeks of pregnancy won't take effect on August 28 after a federal judge temporarily blocked it from being implemented. U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs put a pause on the law as a legal challenge against it plays out in court.

Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. (Christian Gooden/St. Louis Post-Dispatch via AP, File)
