Texas Abortion Restrictions Face US Supreme Court

Barb Wire

(1 min Audio Report – Freedom’s Call)

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of a Texas law that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby, so they can provide continuous care for victims of a botched abortion. And the law mandates that the abortion facility meet the same health standards as other walk-in surgery centers.

When the law temporarily went into effect, it reduced the 40+ abortion clinics to 8, according to a pro-abortion group in Texas.

The Supreme Court plans to hear this case in April, and will likely rule in June. Meanwhile, Texas women should ask themselves why these basic regulations are closing clinics? And we can all pray for common sense at the U.S. Supreme Court.
