US Supreme Court will hear challenge to Texas abortion law

The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear a challenge to the Texas law that establishes safety standards for abortion clinics.

Abortion providers argue that the new standards would force most of the state’s abortion clinics to close, and the law therefore constitutes a restriction on women’s access to legal abortion.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton counters: “The advancement of the abortion industry’s bottom line shouldn’t take precedent over women’s health, and we look forward to demonstrating the validity of these important health and safety requirements in court.” The law requires abortion clinics to meet the safety standards required of other surgical centers; doctors are required to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. Abortion advocates say that only 10 of the more than 40 abortion clinics currently open in Texas can meet those standards.
