The Arizona Supreme Court, in a 4-2 decision, said that an 1864 law outlawing abortion in almost every instance is now enforceable. The law makes no exceptions for rape or incest, and abortions will only be legal if the life of the mother is in danger. “Arizona doctors are going to be afraid to do their jobs. It puts women at significant risk and, you know, makes us stand out as a state in, I think, the worst of ways,” Sen. Mark Kelly told NOTUS’ Oriana González in reaction to the ruling.
