Another judge strikes down another anti-abortion law

Posted By on Fri, Mar 25, 2016 at 3:58 PM

A federal judge in Alabama is the latest to strike down a state law requiring abortion providers to have a doctor on hand with hospital admission privileges. It's  a gimmick to prevent women from having access to abortion.

Arkansas, you may remember, has also run afoul of a federal judge's ruling against a law aimed at outlawing medication abortions in the first weeks of pregnancy. The Arkansas legislature, in practicing medicine without a license, said a doctor who prescribed a pill must be in contact with a doctor with hospital admitting privileges. The list of far more dangerous procedures for which no such requirement exists is far too long to give here.
