MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WHNT) – Planned Parenthood and a Montgomery clinic filed a lawsuit challenging a new law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a local hospital, prompting a judge to temporarily place the law on hold, according to our news partner al.com.

The injunction against the law lasts until July 12.
