Bad news for Wendy "Abortion Barbie" Davis.About one-third of Texas abortion clinics have been shut down since its new law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital went into effect. Reuters reports that a recent ruling in the law's favor by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit prompted the number of shut-downs to rise.
The case had been brought to the appeals court after a U.S. district court struck down some of those laws provisions, but that has now been reversed.
"The district court's opinion took the wrong approach to the rational basis test," the 5th Circuit's decision said. ""Requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges would also promote the continuity of care in all cases, reducing the risk of injury caused by miscommunication and misdiagnosis when a patient is transferred from one health care provider to another."
Planned Parenthood, which brought the suit forward, expressed disapproval with the decision, arguing the law seeks only to shut down abortion clinics. Only six abortion clinics in the state of Texas will be able to meet the requirement.
