Did a quick bit of research:

Looks like this would have an impact on ONLY two facilities that currently don't have admitting privledges, but...

Hospitals often grant privileges only to physicians who guarantee a minimum number of annual referrals, a requirement the abortion providers can’t meet because abortion problems that require hospitalization are rare, according to the lawsuit. And some hospitals won’t grant admitting privileges to abortion providers out of political, ideological or religious reasons, the lawsuit added.

So I can see where this will create a problem since there is likely no way those two facilities would be able to get such priviledges - effectively shutting them down.
