Judge to rule in abortion law case this July

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY - AL -
A federal judge says he intends to rule by the end of July on whether Alabama can enforce a new law requiring doctors at abortion clinics to have approval to admit patients to nearby hospitals.
    
U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson wrapped up a three-week trial Monday in Montgomery.
    
In closing arguments, American Civil Liberties Union attorney Alexa Kolbi-Molinas said the law will close all but two of Alabama's abortion clinics because they use out-of-state doctors who can't get admitting privileges.
    
Alabama's solicitor general, Andrew Brasher, says the traveling doctors haven't tried to get admitting privileges and the clinics' claims haven't been proven.
    
Thompson has put the law on hold pending a ruling.
