Appeals Court Restores Law Protecting Women and Unborn in Texas

November 1, 2013

A federal appeals court has reinstated the new abortion regulations in Texas that will require abortionists to have admitting privileges and limit the use of abortion-inducing drugs. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans ordered a stay of a district court opinion, which will enable the new regulations to go into effect while the case is argued.

These are commonsense regulations that protect women and unborn children. No woman would want to be left alone should an abortion lead to a healthcare emergency. The court found, and most Americans would agree, that requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges in a hospital protects women from abortion-mill doctors, who travel from town to town giving abortions and then leaving town and their responsibility to care for the women after an abortion.

Liberty Counsel salutes the hard-working people of Texas who have championed women’s health in fighting for these commonsense requirements, including former Liberty Counsel attorney and graduate of Liberty University School of Law, now State Representative Matt Krause, one of the cosponsors of this legislation.
