Arizona Senate votes to repeal long-standing abortion ban from 1864: What happens next?

The Arizona state Senate voted to repeal a Civil War-era ban on nearly all abortions, set to temporarily take effect in June. The Republican-led Senate followed the House’s passage last week. The ban briefly took effect after Roe v. Wade was overturned in 2022, but was blocked by courts. Arizona’s highest court revived the ban on April 9, sparking public outcry and potential political upheaval during an election year. The repeal aims to address the restrictive abortion law, with potential long-term implications on reproductive rights in the state.
