Supreme Court Blocks Texas From Shutting Down Abortion Clinics

A five-sentence order issued by the Supreme Court today ensured that Texas's abortion clinics can stay open—for the time being. The order vacated part of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling issued earlier this month that would have forced most of the abortion clinics in Texas to shut down.

The court is currently considering the validity of a Texas law that, if ultimately upheld, would require abortion clinics to meet "ambulatory surgical center" standards and employ only doctors who have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. The required upgrades would reportedly cost millions of dollars for clinics to install.
