A cross has returned to a Christmas tree in a central Indiana town, despite a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union.
A new ordinance governing property owner's signs was passed at a special Bedford City Council meeting.
The Knightstown Town Council released a statement Monday saying the cross was removed because the town could not win a lawsuit filed by the ACLU.
The ACLU of Indiana sued the Department of Child Services on behalf of Mary Price, a caseworker who oversees 43 children.
New changes to state law require an ultrasound at least 18 hours before an abortion.
Planned Parenthood and the ACLU are celebrating the judge's decision, but anti-abortion groups are urging the state to appeal the ruling.
A judge granted the preliminary injunction sought by Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky. The law was to set to take effect Friday.
Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana sued the state in April.
The ACLU says the ruling will impact what obstacles other states can enact when it comes to abortion access, including Indiana.
The federal judge indicated a ruling will come before the law takes effect July 1st.
