Anti-drug-induced abortion bill in Arizona blocked by federal court. June 4, 2014

It’s a victory for Planned Parenthood (and for women everywhere):

Arizona’s law limiting drug-induced abortions was blocked by a federal appeals court, handing a victory to Planned Parenthood as it seeks to roll back a restriction it calls among the most stringent in the nation.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco today ruled unanimously that the law places an undue burden on women’s access to abortions. The statute, while allowing surgical abortions, prohibits medicinal abortions including the use of the drug RU-486 after the seventh week of pregnancy.

The court shot it down because it placed “undue burden on women’s access to abortions.”  Oh how I wish that were the standard everywhere.
