On February 2, 2004, a federal judge overturned a
Virginia abortion law. He said it was a "no-brain case" and that it invaded the privacy right of the woman. The
judge's name is Richard L. Williams. He is a U.S. District judge. Some people, including Virginia congressman
John Cosgrove, who is trying to pass a similar law, were suprised about the judge's ruling. Cosgrove said that he won't
give up on the bill just yet.
