The Arizona Senate decides to repeal a near-total abortion ban from the Civil War era

The Arizona Senate voted to repeal the state’s 160-year-old near-total abortion ban, following the state Supreme Court’s revival of the law. The repeal advanced with support from two Republicans and all Democrats, passing 16 to 14. The bill now awaits Gov. Katie Hobbs’ signature. The legislation would preserve the state’s 15-week limit without exceptions for rape or incest. The repeal is seen as a victory for abortion rights advocates, who have been pushing for the ban’s removal. The story grew contentious as senators debated the issue, with some Republicans against the repeal invoking religious beliefs.
