NAACP v. Horne

NAACP v. Horne

Federal court challenge to a 2011 Arizona law that requires providers to certify that a patient’s reasons for seeking abortion care are unrelated to the race or sex of the fetus. In May 2013, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint in U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona. 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.
