A federal judge in Mississippi has ordered an extension of his temporary order to allow the state's only abortion clinic to stay open.
The order will be in place until the judge can review newly drafted rules on how the Mississippi Department of Health will administer a new abortion law.
The law, which took effect July 1, requires all abortion providers in the state to be certified obstetrician/gynecologists with privileges at local hospitals.
Supporters of the law say it is intended to protect women from unscrupulous practitioners; opponents say it's another step to outlaw abortions in the state.
