PHOENIX (AP) – Abortion providers are asking a federal judge to immediately and permanently block part of a recently passed law that would require doctors to tell women they can reverse the effects of a drug-induced abortion.
The law passed by Ducey this spring is primarily written to bar women from buying any health care plan through the federal marketplace that includes abortion coverage.
But it also includes a provision that requires abortion providers to tell women that it may be possible to reverse the effects of a medically induced abortion 24 hours before a procedure.
The law is set to take effect in July. Advocates on both sides of the issue said it was the first time such a reversal requirement has passed in the U.S.
