Will appeals court side with pro-life law?

gavel brown 620x300A pro-life group is predicting a federal judge will rule in favor of an Arkansas law.

The 2015 Abortion Inducing Drugs Safety Act requires drugs to be administered according to Food and Drug Administration guidelines, and doctors that perform chemical abortions must have admitting privileges at a local hospital or contract with a doctor that has them.

Jerry Cox of Arkansas-based Family Council says it's a law that makes sense.

"Because if a woman has an abortion, and has complications," he says, "she needs to be able to get the best care possible rather than having to drive herself to the emergency room and be seen by a doctor who knows nothing about her medical history."

Cox fully expects Attorney General Leslie Rutledge to appeal the decision on the law, which was initially taken to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals on another argument and resulted in the court reversing federal Judge Kristine Baker.

"And now it's going back to the 8th Circuit," he reports.

Cox predicts the 8th Circuit will do the same thing with Judge Baker's ruling that it did to a previous controversial ruling – a slap on the wrist for "bogus arguments" instead of judicial reasoning.

Baker has suggested that contracting with a physician with admitting privileges at a local hospital overly burdens abortion clinics but there are 6,000 doctors in Arkansas and most can admit a patient.
