The American Civil Liberties Union is suing Alabama over anti-choice restrictions, including a law that treats abortion clinics like sex offenders. The measure banning abortion clinics from operating within 2,000 feet of a K-through-8 public school would shutter the only abortion clinics in Huntsville and Tuscaloosa, which together provide more than half of all abortions in the state. The Alabama Women’s Center in Huntsville is located across from a school; it was forced to move there to comply with other anti-choice restrictions. The ACLU also challenged restrictions that ban a safe abortion method and force abortion providers to give every patient a copy of her medical records, even if she doesn’t want them.
