Many of these laws are the kinds of targeted regulations on abortion providers that have grown in popularity in recent years under the guise of protecting women’s health. Eighteen states compel abortion clinics to meet the exacting standards of ambulatory surgical centers, with detailed requirements for things like hallway width and never-used medications they must keep in stock. Other states require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, even though hospitals must admit any patient in an emergency, and less than one-third of 1 percent of abortion patients end up hospitalized. Some states prohibit doctors from administering medication abortion through telemedicine, a critical resource for reaching remote patients, even though the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists advises that it can be done safely and effectively. Studies have shown that physician assistants and other advanced practice clinicians such as nurse practitioners can perform abortions without a significant increase in complication rate over those performed by doctors, but 38 states have passed laws that only let physicians provide abortion care.
