U.S. judge slows abortion restrictions tide by striking down Alabama law

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 06:23
By Verna Gates BIRMINGHAM Ala. (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Monday ruled unconstitutional an Alabama law that threatened to close three of the state's five abortion clinics, while a trial opened in Texas with an abortion rights group trying to overturn restrictions imposed in that state. A number of abortion clinics have closed in recent months due to laws passed in 11 U.S. states requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson ruled Alabama's law imposed an undue burden on a woman's ability to choose to have an abortion by making it unnecessarily difficult to obtain the procedure. "The evidence compellingly demonstrates that the requirement would have the striking result of closing three of Alabama's five abortion clinics," the judge wrote.
