Despite the ruling in June 2016 by the US Supreme Court that the Texas law requiring abortion facilities to meet ambulatory surgery center (ASC) standards is unconstitutional, 13 states still have laws requiring abortions to be provided in these centers. Supporters of these laws have argued that ASC requirements make abortion safer.
