Is Arkansas Becoming Pro-Choice State?
LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS – July 9, 2018.
The attorney general of Arkansas is about to appeal a federal judge’s decision that would prevent the state from implementing a ban on abortion pills.
According to the law, doctors who provide the pills must have a contract with a physician with admitting privileges to a hospital who agrees to handle any complications as a result of issuing the medication.
Planned Parenthood has said its two facilities and another unaffiliated clinic in Little Rock have been unable to find a physician willing to contract with them.
In May, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Planned Parenthood's appeal to reinstate Baker's 2016 preliminary injunction blocking the law.
