Supreme Court Refuses to Block Texas Abortion Restrictions

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to block controversial Texas abortion restrictions that have been called some of the strictest in the country.
The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to block controversial Texas abortion restrictions that have been called some of the strictest in the country.

The court by a 5-4 vote denied a request by Planned Parenthood to block a ruling by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, which allows key parts of the Texas abortion law to stay in effect while the case plays out.

The ruling means that the provision Planned Parenthood is arguing would make it virtually impossible for Texas women to get an abortion, which requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges to a hospital within a certain geographic location, will remain in effect.
