Supreme Court Abortion Ruling Could Aid An Arizona Lawsuit
A new ruling Monday by the U.S. Supreme Court could aid legal efforts here to void a host of Arizona laws and regulations governing abortion. In the 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana anti-abortion law; four judges citing it had no legitimate purpose in protecting women’s health.
The ruling could aid legal efforts in an Arizona lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood to fight against several state regulations that they claim cumulatively cause an unnecessary burden on women seeking an abortion, and some have no medical basis.
The suit includes the policy banning doctors from prescribing abortion medication via telemedicine. Even during the pandemic where telemedicine is highly encouraged by the state.
