After three months of deliberation, the Supreme Court has ruled that the Texas law restricting abortion providers is unconstitutional because it places an undue burden on women. . . .
Texas's HB2, passed in 2013, required all abortion providers have admitting privileges at a local hospital, mandated that all abortion clinics meet requirements of ambulatory surgical centers, placed restrictions around medically-induced abortions, and prohibited abortion 20-weeks after post-fertilization. The Supreme Court heard challenges to the components of the law that restricted admitting privileges and imposed the ambulatory surgical center requirements.
