But lawyers and advocates appeared to disagree about whether the judge’s order affects doctors at all five abortion clinics in the state or only those at three clinics whose lawsuit challenges the measure. U.S. District Judge John deGravelles wrote that authorities cannot enforce the law until he holds a hearing on whether an order to block it is needed while the case remains in...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-583599582014-08-31T22:23:03.236-06:00" id="#license-2014-08-31T22:23:03.236-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

As a result, a woman’s ability to access safe, legal, essential reproductive health care in the United States today varies widely from state to state. This means a woman in Utah does not have the same access to health care that a woman living in Colorado does. That simply isn’t fair.

Several doctors live outside the state and would be unable to gain the privileges to admit patients to local hospitals required by the law, U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson wrote in a 172-page opinion and an accompanying order.
