Judge blocks pro-life rules in Missouri

(AP)  A federal judge has issued a preliminary injunction to block pro-life rules in Missouri, saying he’s bound by the Supreme Court’s ruling last year striking down similar Texas guidelines.

U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs granted the injunction at the request of Planned Parenthood and Missouri abortion clinics.

Sachs’ ruling invalidates Missouri’s requirements that doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, and that clinics meet hospital-like standards for outpatient surgery.

Last summer the nation’s high court threw out similar Texas rules.
