JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Wednesday is the deadline for the state to file an appeal in a ruling that would have closed the only abortion clinic in Mississippi. 

All 15 circuit judges will be asked to rehear the case and a majority of them must agree.

Earlier, a three-judge panel ruled 2 to 1, that the 2012 law is unconstitutional. It required clinic physicians to obtain admitting privileges at a local hospital in order to perform abortions.

Physicians applied for privileges but were unable to get them.
