HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An abortion clinic in Huntsville has won permission to relocate so it can comply with new state restrictions.

WAAY-TV ( ) reports the city zoning board approved the relocation of the Alabama Women's Center for Reproductive Alternatives during a meeting Tuesday night. It's the state's only abortion clinic north of Birmingham.

Abortion opponents tried to block the move but lost. They now plan to file a lawsuit.

The clinic operated in a downtown building until June. But administrators surrendered their license saying the location couldn't meet new state building requirements.

Operators plan to relocate to a building that used to be a medical clinic and can meet the provisions of the law. They still have to get a state license.
