Judge blocks Kansas anti-abortion law

A federal judge on Friday blocked a Kansas law that forced two clinics in the state to stop providing abortions because they could not comply with 36 pages of new regulations.

Judge Carlos Murguia granted a request from the two clinics for a preliminary injunction to block enforcement of the rules, which went into effect Friday morning.

At a hearing, lawyers for the clinics argued the rules are unreasonable and the state gave less then two weeks' notice for them to be imposed.

The Kansas Department of Environment and Health said the two clinics -- the Center for Women's Health and Aid for Women -- failed to meet the requirements and could not be licensed.
