Judges Reinstate Most Texas Abortion Restrictions

(Austin, TX) -- A new Texas abortion restriction is back to being law after a ruling by a panel of judges with the Fifth District Court of Appeals in New Orleans. The decision requires that doctors performing abortions have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic where they are working. Even so, Planned Parenthood is moving ahead with a lawsuit against the restrictive abortion requirements.
Danielle Wells is with Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas. The abortion restriction was stricken down as unconstitutional earlier this week by Federal Judge Lee Yeakel.
