The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled Arkansas can enforce a law protecting babies from medical abortion. The measure requires abortion pill prescribers to contract with a physician who has admitting privileges at a nearby hospital and can assist with complications. The Planned Parenthood affiliate in Arkansas said it couldn’t find any doctors to work with, so it would have to stop administering the abortion-inducing drugs mifepristone and misoprostol. The organization doesn’t perform surgical abortions in the state, but another facility in Little Rock does.
