    July 24, 2019

    LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge released a statement following the U.S. District Court decision to issue a 14-day temporary restraining order against three Arkansas laws scheduled to go into effect today.

    “The last minute attempt by the ACLU to block Arkansas’s laws is frustrating, but not unforeseen,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “The action was only the initial step and I anticipate further action in the near future in our defense of these laws that protect the life of mothers and their unborn children.”
