Judge Outlaws Abortion Restriction

A federal judge in Texas has blocked the 1999 amendments to the Abortion Facility Reporting and Licensing Act, which required doctors to become licensed by the state as abortion clinics if they performed more than 300 abortions per year in their office.

The law went into effect on September 1, 1999 and would have increased the criminal liability of doctors performing abortions.
