NAACP v. Horne

NAACP v. Horne

Challenge to a 2011 Arizona law that prohibits providing an abortion to women seeking the procedure because they do not want to give birth to a child of a certain gender or race. In May 2013, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint in U.S. District Court. The case was dismissed for lack of standing. Current Status: On March 12, 2014, The National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF) and the NAACP appealed the dismissal. (See the law here. See the complaint here.
