Appeals court won't reconsider Arkansas abortion pill ruling
September 28, 2017
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A federal appeals court cleared the way Wednesday for Arkansas to impose new restrictions on the way the abortion pill is administered in the state, saying it won't reconsider a panel's decision in favor of the 2015 law.
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it won't reconsider a three-judge panel's ruling lifting a federal judge's preliminary injunction against the law. The measure requires doctors providing the abortion pill to maintain a contract with another physician with admitting privileges at a hospital who agrees to handle any complications.
