Arizona Democrats are ready to continue pushing for the repeal of 1864 abortion ban

Democratic state Rep. Stephanie Stahl Hamilton expressed uncertainty about the Democratic effort in the Arizona State Legislature to repeal an 1864 abortion ban. The Arizona Supreme Court recently ruled to enforce this restrictive law, blocking nearly all abortions except to save the mother’s life. Previous attempts to repeal the ban have failed to gain enough support, with Republican House Speaker Ben Toma criticizing Democrats on the issue. Democrats fear the potential lack of Republican support for a repeal. Arizona Senate Democrats are doubtful about the ban being repealed, as the legislature is expected to address the issue again soon.
