Texas' most recent abortion regulations, found in H.B. 2, were upheld by the Fifth Circuit on Thursday.
Finding that the district court both misapplied standards and misconstrued evidence, the Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas v. Abbott Court found that both the medical abortion and "admitting privileges" regulations were constitutional and not an undue burden to women. This ruling threatens the Fifth Circuit's other pending abortion case in Mississippi, which is scheduled for hearing in April.
How did the court come to support these abortion regulations?
