Federal judge temporarily blocks Arkansas abortion restrictions
An Arkansas federal judge blocked three state abortion restrictions that would have gone into effect Wednesday, one of which requires abortion providers to be board-certified gynecologists, which would have closed the state‚Äôs last remaining surgical abortion clinics.

What about the human rights of the little children? The wicked liberal judge seems to have forgotten that completely, contrary to your US Constitution and Bill of Rights, the will of the people of Arkansas State, as well as the Word of God.
