Arizona judge allows state to enforce decades-old abortion ban

An Arizona judge unblocked a law dating back to before it became a state that nearly bans abortion, with the exception of danger to the mother’s life, that had previously been blocked for almost 50 years.

The law was originally blocked with the introduction of Roe v. Wade in 1973 but was open for review after the case was overturned by the Supreme Court, according to 12 News. Pima County Superior Court Judge Kellie Johnson made the ruling a month after hearing arguments from Republican lawyer Mark Brnovich, who rejoiced at the ruling.

“A Pima County judge lifted an injunction that was placed on AZ’s abortion statute. We applaud the court for upholding the will of the legislature and providing clarity and uniformity on this important issue. I have and will continue to protect the most vulnerable Arizonans,” he tweeted.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) signed a law earlier this year that criminalized performing an abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. It was set to go into effect Sept. 24, and it is unclear if it is superseded by this ruling.
