Judge won't block Alaska abortion notification law
"ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A new state law requiring that parents be notified before a girl younger than 18 can get an abortion will take effect as scheduled Tuesday after a judge denied a request to block it.
"Superior Court Judge John Suddock on Monday rejected the request from Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest but made some changes to the law, which was approved by voters in August.
"The judge removed provisions calling for a fine of up to $1,000 and imprisonment of up to five years for people who violate the law. He also struck a section allowing physicians to be liable for damages."
