Alabama Abortion Clinic Law Unconstitutional, Judge Rules

by Wochit 0:51 mins

A federal judge ruled Monday that an Alabama law restricting doctors at abortion clinics is unconstitutional because it would unduly hamper women's ability to obtain the medical procedure. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson, in a 172-page opinion and an accompanying order, said state lawmakers exceeded their authority when they passed a law last year requiring doctors at abortion clinics to have hospital admitting privileges. Thompson extended an earlier order blocking enforcement of the law and said he would issue a final order after considering more written arguments from lawyers. The decision came days after a federal appeals court blocked a similar law in Mississippi.
