General Material
Published Date
June, 2016

This webpage details the Supreme Court case in which the court struck down two provisions of a Texas law, HB2, that impose medically unnecessary regulations on doctors and facilities that provide abortions. One required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic, and the other required abortion clinics to meet the standards for an ambulatory surgical center. The webpage includes case background and links to related articles and legal documents.
