 The US Supreme Court has allowed several abortion clinics in Texas to remain open, despite not falling under the new restrictions that were due on July 1, stated BBC News.
The justices voted 5-4 to grant an emergency appeal from the clinics after a federal appeals court had earlier upheld the new Texas law.
They require abortion clinics to meet hospital-grade standards and for doctors at the clinics to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
With the justices voting 5-4 to grant an emergency appeal, clinics unable to meet restrictions will remain open until the Supreme Court decides whether it will hear the appeal from clinics.
