Planned Parenthood Arizona Incorporated et al v. Humble

Planned Parenthood Arizona Incorporated et al v. Humble

State court challenge to an Arizona law and related regulations that impose restrictions on medication abortion and force abortion clinics to administer medication in an outdated manner. The restrictions mandate a higher dose than is typically used and has been shown to be safe and effective; prohibit clinics from providing medication abortion to patients who are beyond seven weeks of pregnancy; and require patients to make an additional trip to the clinic to obtain the final medication dose. Plaintiffs ask the Maricopa County Superior Court to temporarily enjoin enforcement of the law and regulations pending outcome of the lawsuit. They further ask the court to declare the law and regulations unconstitutional and to permanently enjoin enforcement. (See the complaint here.)
