Texas has suspended a Houston doctor’s license for performing abortions without getting privileges to admit patients to a nearby hospital, the first such move under a new state abortion law that went into effect last year.
The Texas Medical Board said on Friday that physician Theodore Herring performed 268 abortions between Nov. 6 and Feb. 7 without the right to admit patients to an authorized hospital within 30 miles of where the procedures took place.
Admitting privileges allow doctors to quickly check women into a local hospital in the event that they are injured during an abortion.
