TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas judge has temporarily blocked parts of a new state law restricting abortion providers that were set to take effect next week.

Shawnee County District Judge Rebecca Crotty's ruling Thursday covers provisions of the law that changed the definition of what a medical emergency is and requiring abortion providers to post a statement on their websites saying the state's materials on abortion are accurate.

The rest of the new law will take effect Monday as scheduled. Other provisions of the law can be enforced.
