Supreme Court Urged by The Obama Administration to Cancel Recently Passed Texas Abortion Law
The Obama administration urged the US Supreme to cancel a recently passed Texas abortion law. According to the administration, the law can prove to be harmful to women’s health. US Solicitor General Donald Verrilli said that the law would continue to close many of the state’s clinics.
The administration argues that the requirements are more restrictive than those upheld by the court previously. The new regulations require that any facility providing abortions meet the standard of ambulatory care centers, and that abortion doctors have admitting privileges at hospitals no more than 48 kilometers from the clinics at which they practice.
