In a victory for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany, N.Y., a state appeals court ordered the New York Health Department to reconsider its decision allowing two abortion clinics to open. The court said that the Health Department used an invalid regulation to justify the opening of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in Albany and nearby Hudson. The regulation has no force because it has never been published or officially adopted, the court said. The Health Department could still allow the abortion clinics to open if it finds other reasons to justify the need for the facilities, the court said.
