The address of the new site has changed from the city's prior site. The new location is www.bentonar.org.
A federal judge said Wednesday that a challenge to Arkansas' new law banning most abortions 12 weeks into a pregnancy can proceed, rejecting the state's attempt to get the lawsuit dismissed.
U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright ruled that the lawsuit, which was brought by the American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas and the Center for Reproductive Rights on behalf of two Little Rock abortion providers, made a strong enough case to warrant allowing it to go forward.
