US Appeals Court Upholds New Texas Abortion Rules

By  | 

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A federal appeals court has upheld Texas' tough new abortion restrictions.

A panel of judges at the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals issued the ruling Thursday.

The Texas attorney general's office argued that the law requiring doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital is a constitutional use of the Legislature's authority.

Lawyers for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers had argued the regulations did not protect women.
