. The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Arkansas to enforce a law restricting medication abortions, rejecting an appeal from the Planned Parenthood affiliate in the state.
Planned Parenthood had asked the high court to review an appeals court ruling on the abortion pill rules and reinstate a lower court order that had blocked them from taking effect.
The law in question says doctors who provide abortion pills must hold a contract with another physician who has admitting privileges at a hospital, and would agree to handle and treat complications.
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had reversed a court order blocking enforcement of the law, but put that ruling on hold as Planned Parenthood appealed to the Supreme Court.

This merely eliminates the injuncntion and the case proceeds in trial court. It’s not over by long shot.
Actually, it is over; at least in Arkansas.
Whats really interesting is that the four pro-abortion Justices could have forced an acceptance of this case. I think they didnt because the 8th Circuit decision is only binding within that Circuit.
If the four liberals had voted to grant a hearing, Planned Parenthood would lose and the subsequent decision would be binding in every state that passed the same law.
The fight for right to life is winning.
The 10th Amendment’s nose is under the tent!
It’s a start.
