The owner of Mississippi's only abortion clinic says she expects legislators to keep trying to put new restrictions on the facility and the procedure, regardless of how a federal judge rules in a fight over a new state law.

Jackson Women's Health Organization employees spent Thursday scheduling appointments for women seeking abortions. Owner Diane Derzis says it was a normal administrative day. Doctors do abortions there two or three days a week.

Because there were no patients, there were also few people praying or protesting outside under rainy skies.

Judge Daniel P. Jordan III heard arguments Wednesday about the clinic's request to extend his temporary hold on a law putting new regulations on the clinic's physicians. Jordan hasn't indicated when he might rule on the request.
