A federal appeals court has decided to uphold portions of a controversial Texas abortion law. As KUT’s Veronica Zaragovia reports, the U-S Supreme Court had temporarily blocked those portions until the Fifth U-S Circuit Court of Appeals made its decision yesterday. 

Update:  Drs. Lamar Robinson and Jasbir Ahluwalia have reached a settlement [PDF] with University General Hospital Dallas. The hospital  has restored their admitting privileges, which enables them to keep providing abortions by complying with Texas' new abortion restrictions.

In a letter, University General Hospital Dallas says granting admitting privileges to doctors who perform abortions would be disruptive to the hospital’s reputation.
