De­lay sought on abor­tion rul­ing

Los Angeles Times - - THE NATION - — Maria L. L a Ganga, Molly Hen­nessy-Fiske

A coali­tion of abor­tion providers asked a fed­eral ap­peals court to sus­pend its rul­ing that would force most Texas abor­tion clin­ics to close as of July 1.

The providers are re­quest­ing time to ap­peal to the U.S. Supreme Court, ar­gu­ing that if the U.S. 5th Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals’ rul­ing goes into ef­fect, clin­ics and women seek­ing abor­tions would suf­fer “ir­repara­ble harm,” ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments.

On Tues­day, a three­mem­ber panel of the 5th Cir­cuit up­held most of the law. Abor­tion providers say all but eight Texas clin­ics would be forced to close.
