Supreme Court declines to hear challenge to Arkansas abortion law

SCOTUS refuses to hear Arkansas abortion banThe U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge Tuesday to a controversial new Arkansas law that blocks medication-induced abortions.

The case, Planned Parenthood of Arkansas & Eastern Oklahoma v. Jegley, appeared on the court's "Certiorari Denied" list, meaning the case will not get a hearing before the court.

The state law, passed three years ago, says any physician who "gives, sells, dispenses, administers, or otherwise provides" abortion-inducing drugs must have a contract with another physician who has authority to admit patients to a nearby hospital.

TVNL Comment:  Reminder: Donald Trump said very clearly that women who get abortions must be punished.  More obstacles to health care for women have been put in place in the last year than at any other time.  Women who back Trump need to rethink their betrayal of other women.
