BREAKING: 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Upholds Most of HB2

June 9, 2015

Update: On a press call, Whole Woman’s Health Founder and CEO Amy Hagstrom Miller has vowed to take the case all the way to the Supreme Court. Clinics have 22 days to comply with the court’s ruling.

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that the majority of the most harmful provisions of House Bill 2 can remain in effect, shuttering all but 8 clinics in the entire state. With the exception of Whole Woman’s Health of McAllen, all clinics in Texas are required to comply with the costly building standards of ambulatory surgical centers and must have physicians on site that maintain hospital admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic. Read our press release below and the court ruling here.
