Arizona State House Approves Repeal of 1864 Abortion Ban

Arizona state House lawmakers voted to pass a bill repealing a 1864 near-total ban on abortion, upheld by the state’s Supreme Court. Three Republicans joined Democrats for the repeal. The state Senate is expected to pass the repeal, with Governor Katie Hobbs likely to sign it. Republicans initially resisted the repeal, but mounting pressure led to its passing. The law banned abortion except to save the woman’s life. A proposed constitutional amendment on abortion rights may appear on the November ballot. Republicans are considering alternative measures to compete with the pro-abortion rights amendment.
