SCOTUS to hear case involving Texas abortion law

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Friday that it has accepted a case challenging portions of a 2013 Texas law regulating abortion providers. The law’s challenged provisions require abortion facilities to meet the same safety standards as ambulatory surgical centers, and require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.

The case is Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole. Arguments are not expected before February 2016.
