n Mississippi Wednesday, a federal judge extended his temporary order allowing the state's only abortion clinic to remain open. The reprieve will be in place until a U.S. dictrict judge reviews a new abortion law in the state that requires abortion providers to be OB/GYNs with hard-to-obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital. The doctors providing abortions at Mississippi's one clinic typically come from other states, and, some say, the new law is part of a plan to make abortion illegal in the state. Proponents of the law say it's merely meant to protect women form unscrupulous doctors.
