A federal appeals court ruled that the Biden administration cannot use a 1986 emergency care law to require doctors in Texas hospitals to provide abortions for women whose lives are at risk due to pregnancy.

The ruling comes after the administration issued guidance requiring hospitals to provide abortion services if there’s a risk to the mother’s life.

However, the court sided with Texas, stating that the law requires hospitals to stabilize the pregnant woman and her fetus.

“We agree with the district court that EMTALA does not provide an unqualified right for the pregnant mother to abort her child especially when EMTALA imposes equal stabilization obligations,” Judge Kurt Engelhardt wrote.

Abortion opponents have challenged the emergency care law guidance in multiple jurisdictions, with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejecting the administration’s appeal in Tuesday’s ruling.
