The U.S. Supreme Court's decision on Monday to temporarily lift Texas' strict regulations on abortion providers means at least 10 clinics that do not meet those standards may continue to perform the procedure. 

For some abortion facilities, that move comes too late. Since Texas' GOP lawmakers approved the new regulations in 2013 — requiring clinics to meet certain hospital-like standards, and doctors to have hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles of a clinic — nearly half of the state's abortion providers have closed their doors or stopped performing the procedure. 

The Texas Department of State Health Services says 23 facilities in Texas may currently be providing abortions; The Texas Tribune was able to independently verify 20 of them. At least one location, Alamo Women's Reproductive Services Clinic in San Antonio, only performs preliminary abortion services, such as an ultrasound, and the patient must go to the Alamo City Surgery Center to have the abortion. See the locations below. Those that meet so-called ambulatory surgical center requirements are marked in teal; those that don't, and would not be allowed to perform abortions if the Supreme Court upholds Texas' abortion rules, are marked in purple.
