Supreme Court to hear challenge to union fees and reviews the latest travel. Judge Napolitano breaks down the cases.

The Supreme court allows Arkansas to enforce a law, restrictions on medication abortions, the rejection of an appeal of the planned Parenthood affiliates in the state.

Planned Parenthood had asked the high court to review an appeals court rules, the decision on the abortion pill and to restore a lower court decision that had blocked them from taking effect.

The law in question says that the doctors, the pills must an abortion over a contract with another physician who has to agree to admitting privileges in a hospital, and would have to hand, and treatment of complications.

The 8. U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals lifted had to keep a court order blocking the enforcement of the law, but the judgment, such as planned Parenthood appealed to the Supreme court.

The legal battle continues, but Arkansas is allowed at this point to enforce the law.

Planned Parenthood argued that if the law stands, Arkansas is not the only state where women have access to a few of the drugs that end pregnancies—mifepristone, which makes it difficult to attach the fetus to the uterine wall, and misopostol, to expel the body, the pregnancy similar to a miscarriage.

Planned Parenthood offer abortion medications to hospitals and clinics in Fayetteville and Little Rock, but said it could not find an obstetrician in the state ready to handle admissions to the hospital.

The organization argued that the law prevents women from abortions, the procurement of drugs and would violate their right to an abortion, otherwise known as an undue burden. Undue burden is the standard of the Supreme Court in the case of the measurement, whether the restrictions go too far in the restriction of women to have an abortion.

Critics of the law say it could have abortions at the end of drugs in the state.

The law is similar to a provision in a Texas law, which the Supreme court struck in the year 2016.
