Abortion rights group opposes effort to reinstate Arizona ban

PHOENIX ( Associated Press) — Planned Parenthood Arizona said in a legal filing Wednesday that courts need to “harmonize” the state’s two separate laws on abortion after Attorney General Mark Branovich last week called for an over-dating process. But shifted to reinstate almost complete ban. century.

On July 13, Branovich asked a Tucson court to overturn an order that had blocked an earlier ban, shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the 1973 Roe v. Wade case that abortion was a constitutional right. In June the newly conservative High Court reversed the Roe v. Wade ruling, leaving it to the states to decide how best to regulate abortion.

Planned Parenthood Arizona said in its new court filing that providers must now navigate inconsistent statements from elected officials and stressed that “this court has a duty to harmonize all Acts of the Arizona Legislature as they are today.” are also present.”

Branovich said that the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade meant that Arizona’s old law banning all abortions, except when a woman’s life was at risk, must now be enforced.

Arizona also has a law banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, which was signed into law in March by Republican Governor Doug Ducey. Ducey has insisted that Branovich takes precedence over the almost absolute ban it seeks to impose.

Planned Parenthood Arizona CEO Brittany Fonteno said Wednesday that Branovich is “playing politics at the cost of Arizonans’ lives.”

“We know Arizonans are in favor of abortion access, and Planned Parenthood will continue to fight these attacks to ensure that everyone gets the health care they need and deserve,” Fonteno said.

The attorney general’s office did not immediately return a request seeking feedback on Planned Parenthood’s latest filing Wednesday.
