Dallas doctors settle with hospital, can continue doing abortions

Two Dallas doctors whose hospital admitting privileges were in jeopardy can continue performing abortions after they settled a lawsuit Monday with an Oak Cliff hospital.

Dr. Lamar Robinson and Dr. Jasbir Ahluwalia, who each run an abortion clinic in Dallas, sued University General Hospital earlier this year for revoking their privileges because they perform abortions. Under a 2013 Texas law, doctors must have admitting privileges at a hospital near their clinic in order to terminate pregnancies.

The doctors accused University General of violating a state law that forbids hospitals from discriminating against doctors for their willingness or refusal to perform abortions. The state recently used that protection to defend the new abortion law, arguing that reliable doctors could get admitting privileges without fear of being rejected for performing abortions.
