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.
