Planned Parenthood says it’s complying with restriction

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Planned Parenthood says it’s now complying with an Arkansas law that was put on hold requiring doctors providing abortions pills to contract with a physician with admitting privileges at a hospital who agrees to handle any complications.

Attorneys for Planned Parenthood Great Plains and the state of Arkansas asked a federal appeals court Monday to lift a judge’s ruling that had prevented the state from enforcing the abortion pill restriction. A federal judge in July had issued a preliminary injunction against the law but ordered Planned Parenthood to continue trying to find a contracting physician.

Monday’s joint filing said Planned Parenthood found a physician willing to contract with it.

Planned Parenthood had argued Arkansas’ restriction would have made the state the first in the nation to effectively ban abortion pills.
