The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down a pair of strict Texas abortion regulations, sparing nearly a dozen clinics in the state from imminent closure and deflating a years-long effort by conservative lawmakers around the country to limit the procedure.

.

The ruling, the nation's most significant clarification of abortion law in a generation, was 5-3, with conservative Justice Anthony Kennedy siding with the court's four liberals against the regulations, which required abortion doctors to obtain admitting privileges at a nearby hospital and clinics to comply with the expensive standards of ambulatory surgical centers.

.

Those regulations, the majority found, were medically unnecessary and too strict for too many abortion providers to meet, forcing closures and thus making it unconstitutionally difficult for women to access the procedure.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito objected to the ruling on largely technical grounds, leaving Justice Clarence Thomas as the most passionate defender of the regulations.

.

The larger-than-expected victory for abortion rights is expected to reverberate around the country for years to come, especially due to new precedents that seemed to establish the safety of abortion and the need for courts to closely scrutinize legislative claims about the necessity of regulations to protect women's health.

.

Most immediately, similar laws in nearly a dozen other states are likely to be affected by the ruling, making abortion easier to access for tens of millions of women nationwide.

.

"Today women across the nation have had their constitutional rights vindicated," said Nancy Northup, president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights, a New York-based organization that ran the legal challenge to the regulations. "The Supreme Court sent a loud and clear message that politicians cannot use deceptive means to shut down abortion clinics."

.

Texas state officials decried the ruling, saying that an activist court had usurped the power of lawmakers and endangered women.

.

"The decision erodes States' lawmaking authority to safeguard the health and safety of women and subjects more innocent life to being lost," Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement. "Texas' goal is to protect innocent life, while ensuring the highest health and safety standards for women."

.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said the Texas Senate would revisit the issue, adding that lawmakers would have to review the ruling to determine their options.

.

On Monday, Davis, who lost a bid for governor after the filibuster, told MSNBC that she was "overjoyed" by the ruling and fought back tears while reading it.

.

"It's incredible news for the women of Texas and the women of the country," she said, predicting it will take several months "to see us rebound to a place where women throughout the state have the access they once had" to abortion clinics.

.

House Bill 2 also banned almost all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and limited the use of the so-called abortion pill. Those provisions were not challenged and remain in place.
