A federal judge is putting a key part of an Alabama abortion law on hold until next year. The law tightens restrictions on abortion providers.
Opponents say it will force the closing of more than half of the state's abortion clinics.
It was set to go into effect Aug. 15 but U.S. District Judge Myron Thomson has delayed enforcement until March 24, 2014.
The ruling gives the court time to move forward with a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Meanwhile, pro-abortion Texas Sen. Wendy Davis is heading to Washington for a big fundraiser to boost her political career.
Davis is the state senator who filibustered the 20-week abortion ban in the Texas legislature last month. Now, following much positive media coverage, she's on a fundraising tour.
Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Center, talked more about media's coverage of abortion on CBN News Channel Morning News, July 25.
