A major women’s healthcare and abortion provider in Arizona is starting to work through the legal system to stop Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s continuing effort to enforce a near-complete abortion ban in Arizona.
Planned Parenthood Arizona says it filed a response in Pima County Superior Court opposing Brnovich’s motion to vacate an injunction that blocked Arizona’s pre-Roe law that dates back more than 100 years. The Attorney General’s Office said they sought consistency and clarity in the application of the law after the recent overturn of Roe v. Wade. Meanwhile, Gov. Doug Ducey says a ban on abortions after 15 weeks signed in March takes precedence over the pre-1901 law Brnovich said is in effect.
