Arizona's attorney general, Mark Brnovich, won't enforce a disputed section of a new law requiring abortion providers to tell women they can reverse drug-induced abortions until the matter can be sorted in court.
The decision made public Tuesday comes as the state prepares to defend itself in a lawsuit filed by abortion providers.
Critics have said there's no science that shows drug-induced abortions can be reversed, and abortion providers argue it's unconstitutional to require doctors to say something that goes against their medical judgment.
A federal appeals court this morning issued an injunction blocking the state from telling doctors how they can and cannot use certain drugs for abortions. Arizona Public Radio’s Howard Fischer reports.
After two-and-a-half years, Planned Parenthood will again offer medication abortions in Flagstaff. As Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports, the reinstatement comes as the state legislature further restricts abortions in the state.
