AZ Abortion Law

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.

State health officials formally moved today to enact new abortion restrictions, including one that could make the procedure more expensive. Arizona Public Radio’s Howard Fischer explains.

The U.S. Supreme Court refused today to allow the state to enforce its ban on abortion at 20 weeks. Arizona Public Radio's Howard Fischer explains.

A series of new restrictions on abortions in the last four years has propelled the state into the Top Five of places considered most friendly to "pro-life'' issues.

Attorneys for the state and abortion foes are asking a federal appeals court to let it cut off federal and state funding for Planned Parenthood because it also offers abortions.
