Arizona Courts uphold religious intrusion into personal, private reproductive medical care

Last week, women in Arizona lost yet another battle in the ongoing fight against religious intrusion into personal, private reproductive medical care. The Arizona Court of Appeals released their decision in a lawsuit brought by Planned Parenthood to prevent implementation of religiously motivated abortion restrictions adopted in 2009 by the Arizona State Legislature and signed by Governor Brewer. Unfortunately, the court’s ruling upheld the legislation in question and allows the restrictions which Planned Parenthood had sought injunctions against to become law.
