Texas Catholic Conference disappointed by court ruling on abortion law

 | 

The Texas Catholic Conference expressed disappointment with the U.S. Supreme Court's 5-4 decision Monday that temporarily blocks Texas from enforcing new requirements on abortion clinics that would force many of them to close.

The Texas law requires the clinics to meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers when performing abortions. Other provisions of the law, such as requiring abortion doctors to have hospital privileges and prohibiting abortions after 20 weeks gestation, were not affected.
