Federal Judge Temporarily Blocks Closure of Mississippi's Only Abortion Clinic
The New York Times: Ruling Prevents Closing of Mississippi's Sole Abortion Clinic, by Campbell Robertson:
A federal judge in Mississippi on Monday blocked part of a state law that would have forced the closing of the state’s only abortion clinic. The ruling is not final, but it did keep the law from going into effect while a decision on its constitutionality is made, keeping Mississippi, at least temporarily, from becoming the first state in the country without an abortion clinic. . . .
