Fed Judge Strikes Down Texas Law Requiring Improved Health Standards At Abortion Clinics
AUSTIN, Texas — A federal judge Friday threw out new Texas abortion restrictions that would have effectively closed more than a dozen clinics in the state.
U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel sided with clinics that sued over one of the most disputed measures of a sweeping anti-abortion bill signed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry in 2013.
The ruling stops new restrictions that would have left seven abortion facilities in Texas come Monday. There are currently 19 abortion providers in the state, according to groups challenging the law.
“The overall effect of the provisions is to create an impermissible obstacle as applied to all women seeking a previability abortion,” Yeakel wrote in his 21-page ruling.

These "restrictions" are the same safety standards to which out-patient surgical centers are held. And they comply (there are one or two such surgery centers within 15 minutes' walk of my home, at which members of my immediate family have had sinus, shoulder and knee surgeries). These standards establish requirements for: facilities, equipment, and instrument cleanliness and sanitation; proper handling of medications and disposal of out-of-date medications; training/certifications pertinent and appropriate for personnel performing critical tasks; unhindered access for ambulance stretchers (wide doorways, uncluttered hallways, adequate elevators); proper disposal of biohazard "wastes" and other hazardous wastes (e.g. used needles, out-of-date medications); prior arrangements with nearby hospitals to accept and quickly treat women experiencing potentially deadly complications.
Abortuaries are not being held to discriminatory standards. Outpatient surgery centers - which are numerous - meet these standards.
If several abortuaries in TX do not already meet these standards voluntarily, it's because they have made profit their priority at the expense of patients; safety and health. That these abortuaries fought having to comply with these common sense proves patient safety means little to them. This judge's decision, if it stands, will get more women killed by unsafe and unsanitary abortuaries.SVPete
