Virginia has lost another round in court over its so-called "partial birth" abortion ban.

Six weeks ago, a federal judge in Richmond declared the law UNconstitutional and barred its enforcement.
Today, Judge Robert Payne refused to let the law go back into effect until an appeal could be filed.
Virginia Attorney General Mark Earley -- who wrote the law -- says he'll file a new appeal later this week.
