The people of Arizona deserve to have access to abortion care in state.
Since the Supreme Court ruling on Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health Organization was announced in June 2022, Arizona state leaders have remained in conflict over which anti-abortion law should take precendent.
In their ruling, the Supreme Court decided that states should hold the power to decide on abortion laws. Arizona has historically remained a hostile, anti-abortion state since the days after Democratic Governor Janet Napolitano ended her term in 2009.
During the 2022 legislative session, elected officials voted and passed a new anti-abortion law - a 15 week gestational ban. This ban would prohibit any abortion care after 15 weeks except to save the life of the pregnant person in emergency situations. This law was set to take effect on September 24, 2022.
