United States District Judge Lee Yeakel ruled yeseterday that part of the abortion law passed this summer in Texas (known as HB2) is unconstitutional, saying that abortionists don’t need to have local hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles of their abortion facilities. After the bill was signed into law this July, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, immediately cried foul saying the safety regulations in the bill would shut down a third of the abortion facilities in Texas, creating a undo burden on women by requiring them to only receive abortions from abortionists who have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital in case of an emergency.
