Court to hear Arizona abortion-drug limits case

PHOENIX — A federal appeals court panel is set to hear arguments on the
legality of Arizona’s new rules limiting the use of abortion-inducting drugs.

A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued an
injunction blocking the rules from going into effect last month. The panel will
hold a hearing on the case Tuesday.

The rules limit where and how women can take abortion-inducing drugs and block
their use after the seventh week of pregnancy. Women can now use the drugs into
their ninth week.

Lawyers for Arizona want the court to allow the rules to be implemented.
Lawyers representing Planned Parenthood of Arizona want the injunction kept in
place.

The restrictions were released in January by state health officials to
implement part of a 2012 state law.
