Supreme Court Rejects Planned Parenthood Over Arkansas Law

(Worthy News) - The U.S. Supreme Court let Arkansas start enforcing a law that effectively bars pill-induced abortions, turning away an appeal by two Planned Parenthood clinics and at least temporarily leaving the state with only one abortion provider.

The justices rejected the appeal in a one-line order, without any published dissent, suggesting the court’s liberals made a tactical decision not to object publicly at this point.

Planned Parenthood said in a statement it will immediately stop providing medication abortions in the state while also seeking an emergency order to again block the law. The organization will have another chance to overturn the law at the federal trial court level, and the case could return to the Supreme Court soon. [ Source: Bloomberg (Read More...) ]
