Planned Parenthood Frustrated With Arkansas Abortion Law. Asks Judge to Reconsider Ag

On 06.11.18 09:50 AM posted by Grace Carr

Less than two weeks after the U.S. Supreme*Court refused to hear a case [that could have lead to an outcome] that would have allowed Planned Parenthood to continue offering medication abortions, the abortion organization asked a federal judge to reconsider the ruling.

Planned Parenthood attorneys asked U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker Friday to block Arkansasí law that*requires*doctors who provide medication abortions to have a contract with another physician having hospital-admitting privileges,*according to ABC News.*Planned Parenthood became no longer able to administer medication abortions at its three locations in the state following the Supreme Courtís May 28 refusal to hear its suit against Arkansasí Abortion-Inducing Drugs Safety Act. The abortion organization has been forced to*cancel a number of appointments since the courtís ruling.

Previously, a Little Rock federal judge prevented the 2015 law from being enforced. The*8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, however, overturned that judgeís previous decision, after which Planned Parenthood challenged the ruling. The abortion organization alleges the law presents an undue burden on womenís access to abortion when requiring abortion doctors to have a contract with a physician who has admitting privileges at a local hospital.

Planned Parenthood does not look kindly upon the Supreme Courtís decision as evidenced by its second request for another judgement on the law. ďThis dangerous law also immediately ends access to safe, legal abortion at all but one health center in the state,Ē Planned Parenthood Vice President Dawn Laguens said following the Supreme Courtís ruling.

The case, Planned Parenthood of Arkansas & Eastern Oklahoma v. Jegley, persists.
