Those Courts, Again

An excerpt from an article by Tim Stanley, appearing in the Telegraph:
A federal judge has rescued Mississippi’s last remaining abortion clinic. On Sunday, US District Judge Daniel P Jordan blocked implementation of a law stipulating that anyone performing abortions in a Mississippi clinic must be a doctor with privileges to admit patients to a local hospital. Such privileges are hard to get, and the clinic says that the mandate is being used to put them out of business. A hearing on July 11 will decide whether or not it can be delayed for a longer time. If the law does go into effect, many Mississippians will no longer be able to access low-cost abortions. The nearest alternative clinics are a 200 mile drive away in Alabama or Tennessee.

In many parts of America, all that now keeps the abortion industry afloat is the intervention of the courts.
