Clinics Challenge Law That Prohibit Abortion Clinics Near Schools

The Seattle Times (July 11, 2016): Clinics ask judge to bloc Alabama abortion restrictions, by AP:

The ACLU is seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent an Alabama law that bans abortion clinics near schools and prohibits D & E abortions from going into effect.  

The location bill targeted the Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives in Huntsville. The clinic moved to a new location in 2013 in order to comply with a new state law requiring clinics to meet the same building code requirements as outpatient surgical centers. The new location is down the street from a K-8 magnet school.

According to the ACLU, the school restriction would close the two largest abortion clinics in the state.
