LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas, January 12, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – An Arkansas judge has extended an order blocking enforcement of two pro-life laws enacted last year.

In December, U.S. District Court Judge Kristine Baker ordered a two-week delay of implementation of an admitting privileges law for abortionists, as well as a requirement for medication abortions to require six, not four, doses.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Baker wrote that the requirement for abortionists to use the extra doses in line with Food & Drug Administration standards “does not appear to be the current standard of care.” She also concluded that a requirement to have only doctors with admitting privileges at nearby hospitals conduct medication abortions “would result in an undue burden and have the effect of placing a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman's right to choose to have an abortion of a nonviable fetus.”

The block has now been extended from January 14 to March 14, by request of both the state and Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.

In its lawsuit, Planned Parenthood says the two extra doses for medication abortions both are unnecessary and increase the cost of getting an abortion. They also say they have not been able to find doctors who will contract with them to conduct the abortions in line with the admitting privileges standards.
