Planned Parenthood Arizona v. Horne

Planned Parenthood Arizona v. Horne

Challenge to 2010 Arizona abortion clinic licensing regulations that effectively prohibit qualified nurse practitioners from providing first-trimester surgical abortion and medication abortion, prohibit qualified physician assistants from providing medication abortion, and impose medically unnecessary and inappropriate clinical requirements on the provision of medication abortion. Final Outcome: The Court of Appeals of Arizona upheld the law at issue and Planned Parenthood Arizona will not appeal the ruling. (See the law here. See the court decision here.
