A federal judge today extended a restraining order against enforcement of the most restrictive U.S. abortion law. District Judge Alex Munson had issued a temporary restraining order Friday, a few hours after a group of Guam residents and medical groups filed a class-action suit. Today he extended the order until May 8, when a trial on the suit is scheduled to begin. The law prohibits abortions except when a pregnancy endangers the life of the mother.
