Judge agrees to block new Mo. abortion law
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A federal judge Monday agreed to temporarily block enforcement of a new Missouri law aimed at increasing regulation of abortion clinics.
U.S. District Judge Otrie Smith granted a request from Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri for a temporary injunction, saying he will hold a Sept. 10 hearing to determine whether to make the injuction permanent.
The new law, to take effect Tuesday, pulls more abortion clinics under the state's stricter requirements for surgical facilities.
