HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An abortion clinic in Huntsville has won permission to relocate so it can comply with new state restrictions.
WAAY-TV (http://bit.ly/1od8fS5 ) 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.
