AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday upheld the main provisions of a restrictive Texas abortion law, including one that requires clinics to meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit allowed for the law to be applied across the state but set up an exception for a clinic in the southern city of McAllen.
