A federal judge Wednesday extended for another week a hold on a state law requiring doctors who perform abortions to have hospital admitting privileges.

 
This is the third time U.S. District Judge William Conley has temporarily blocked the law from going into effect. He now has placed it on hold until Aug. 8, or until he decides whether to issue a preliminary injunction that would be in place for a longer period.
