SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - A group says it plans to begin accepting patients at an abortion clinic in the northern Indiana city of South Bend next week.

The South Bend Tribune reports that Amy Hagstrom Miller, of the Whole Women’s Health Alliance, said employees began answering phones Wednesday and booking appointments for next week.

A federal judge granted an injunction May 31 allowing the Texas-based nonprofit to open the clinic without a state-required license, pending a final ruling in a federal lawsuit on the license that’s set to go to trial next year.

State officials have said the alliance hasn’t provided requested safety documentation, and Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill’s office has appealed the judge’s ruling to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.

The clinic will perform medication-induced abortions for women who are up to 10 weeks pregnant.
