Judge Temporarily Blocks Louisiana Abortion Law

(Baton Rouge, LA) -- A federal judge is blocking a law that would likely close down all five abortion clinics in Louisiana. The law would have required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their practice. The district court judge ruled the law can still go into effect today, but officials cannot penalize doctors or clinics for breaking it while a challenge is being heard.
