A federal judge says an Alabama law restricting abortion doctors is unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson ruled Monday that state lawmakers exceeded their authority when they passed a law last year requiring doctors at abortion clinics to have hospital admitting privileges.
Thompson issued an order temporarily blocking enforcement of the law.
Thompson's decision comes days after a federal appeals court blocked a similar law in Mississippi.
Planned Parenthood and others filed a lawsuit over the Alabama law last year.
