Supreme Court Allows Texas Abortion Clinics to Stay Open

The Supreme Court has declared that the abortion clinics in Texas impacted by the state’s highly restrictive abortion law will be able to stay open while the case is decided in the court system.

The law meant that 80 percent of the state’s abortion clinics would have to close. The clinics still have to face a lengthy court battle. But had the law been allowed to stay in effect for the many months it could take to decide the case, they might lose their building leases and licenses, and have had to stay closed permanently. Today’s decision is a victory for the women of Texas.

Read a great analysis of the case so far.
