Center for Reproductive Rights, ACLU File New Lawsuit Challenging Four Abortion Restrictions Passed in Arkansas This Year

The Center for Reproductive Rights, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the ACLU of Arkansas filed a new lawsuit in federal district court today challenging four abortion restrictions passed in Arkansas this year. Specifically, the lawsuit—which was filed on behalf of a women’s health care provider in federal district court—challenges a ban on one of the safest and most common methods of ending a pregnancy in the second trimester as well as a host of restrictions that force doctors to notify others--including family members--of a woman’s abortion. Many of the measures could impose significant, if not indefinite, delays on a woman’s ability to access to abortion and miscarriage care. In short, these laws could effectively end abortion care in the state for many women.

Center for Reproductive Rights Calls President Trump’s Budget “Cruel and Short-Sighted”

“The cruel and short-sighted cuts to basic health care programs included in this budget will cause irreparable harm to millions at home and abroad. From targeting women and men who seek basic health care at Planned Parenthood to zeroing out life-saving international family planning assistance, this budget is an insult to women’s health and dignity. Congress must reject this ugly attack on women’s health and rights”
