Big pro-life win for Ark. and likely the rest of U.S.

ArkansasIt is argued that a recent ruling in Arkansas will have huge implications for pro-life measures not only within the Natural State, but across the entire country.

On Monday, United States District Judge Kristine Baker issued a temporary restraining order against Arkansas' 2015 Abortion-Inducing Drugs Safety Act. The law requires doctors who perform drug-induced abortions to have admitting privileges at a local hospital – or have a contract with a doctor who does.

Family Council President Jerry Cox – whose nonprofit Arkansas-based organization fights for the sanctity of human life – explained the benefits resulting from the recent landmark decision against abortion.

"So, if a woman has complications because of a drug-induced abortion, she'll be able to get quick medical care,” Cox pointed out. “She'll be able to have her records follow her there to the hospital – and all the other things that you would want … if you wanted good health care."

Planned Parenthood of Arkansas recently stopped doing drug-induced abortions after personnel said they could get admitting privileges.

Now that Judge Baker has issued a temporary restraining order, the law is suspended while the federal courts take another look at the Arkansas law.

"Planned Parenthood and those guys are going to drag this thing out in court until the very last breath," Cox asserted. "If this admitting law here in Arkansas is upheld, it has huge implications for pro-life legislation all across the country because it will have been affirmed that these laws are constitutional to require abortion doctors to have admitting privileges or a contract with someone who does, and that's really going to put a kink into what Planned Parenthood is going."

In the meantime, the Christian leader believes that Americans across the country should be in prayer about this situation during the review process.

"They ought to be watching it, and they ought to try to copy it if it's upheld in Arkansas, which I believe it will be," Cox advised.
