Description:  Abortionists in Texas filed suit against the state's women’s safety law known as House Bill 2. Most recently, they challenged a provision that requires abortion facilities to meet the same health and safety standards as ambulatory surgical centers, and a provision that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local hospital in the event a woman must seek hospital care due to post-abortion complications.
