Pro-choice activists are up in arms over the new law in Texas that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. Because so few abortionists in Texas are able to get these admitting privileges, abortion clinics are suspending operations.
One pro-choice website said the following:

I was reminded of that upsetting episode by a USA Today story about a wave of violence against hospital workers in China. From the story:
