Arkansas Republicans aren't content with having enacted the most restrictive abortion laws in the country and are considering other ways of making abortions harder to get.

State Sen. Jason Rapert, who was behind the 12-week ban, now wants to cut all public funding to Planned Parenthood. And the state's top anti-abortion advocacy group is urging lawmakers to bar providers from remotely administering the abortion pill via a video hookup.

The 20-week ban took effect immediately. The 12-week ban didn't.
