Good News for Women.  The Detroit Free press breaks AZ News.

A three person panel of the Ninth Circuit Court temporarily blocked Arizona's 20 week abortion ban  which counts your pregnancy beginning at the last date of menses which makes you 18 weeks pregnant in reality and 20 weeks pregnant in the vast arid wasteland.  Many fetal abnormalities are not identified until after 20 weeks. Another law in AZ makes it OK for doctors to NOT tell you that your fetus has an abnormality if the doc thinks you may abort, if you know that.

Of course there is this exception:

"women can file separate lawsuits on a case-by-case basis to argue that they should be allowed to have an abortion after 20 weeks due to individual circumstances"
Just what you and your family want to do, if you have a fatally deformed fetus.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
