In a narrow vote, the US Supreme Court this week declined to block a Texas law that places greater restrictions on the state’s abortion clinics. The law requires doctors who perform abortions in clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. Opponents say the law prevents a third of the state’s abortion clinics from providing services. Meanwhile, voters in Albuquerque, New Mexico rejected a referendum that would have banned late-term abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
