A judge has ordered a Birmingham clinic to stop performing abortions because the facility isn't licensed to provide them.

   Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Boohaker said Thursday that the clinic - New Woman, All Women Health Care - is considered a hospital under state law but doesn't have a current state health board license.

   Health officials cited the clinic for dozens of violations last year and the operators agreed to close. But a doctor was still performing abortions at the site.
