Supreme Court stomps on Texas abortion law

NY Times

The Supreme Court  struck down parts of a restrictive Texas law that could have reduced the number of abortion clinics in the state to about 10 from what was once a high of roughly 40.

The decision concerned two parts of a Texas law that imposes strict requirements on abortion providers. One part of the law requires all clinics in the state to meet the standards for ambulatory surgical centers, including regulations concerning buildings, equipment and staffing. The other requires doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.
