TITUSVILLE, FL – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is praising today’s order by the Supreme Court to let stand an appeals court decision that may allow enforcement of an Arkansas law that provides safeguards for women undergoing so-called medication abortions.
“The Supreme Court’s declining to hear a challenge to Arkansas’s pro-life law is a victory for women and their babies,” said Fr. Pavone.  “Abortion drug techniques are particularly dangerous and this new statute will help ensure that women will have someone to turn to should complications arise.”
Arkansas enacted a bill in 2015 that requires a doctor who prescribes or dispenses the two-drug abortion regimen to have a contract with a doctor who agrees to treat women who experience complications during the multi-day procedure.  Planned Parenthood sued to stop the law from taking effect, but a federal appeals court rejected a lower court’s ruling enjoining the measure.  The case now returns to a lower court, but the Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge is asking the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals to let the law be enforced immediately.
“While we don’t know the Supreme Court’s reasons for not hearing Planned Parenthood’s challenge, we do know that any defeat for Planned Parenthood is a victory for human life,” added Fr. Pavone.  “It’s a good day for the people of Arkansas.”
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
