Republican Lawmakers in Arizona Block Repeal of 1864 Abortion Ban

HeadlineApr 11, 2024

In Arizona, Republican lawmakers have blocked efforts by Democrats to repeal an 1864 law that bans nearly all abortions in the state. The moves came a day after Arizona’s Supreme Court revived the 160-year-old law, which was approved before Arizona was a state and before women could even vote. The court issued its decision a day after Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said abortion should be decided by the states. On Wednesday, Trump criticized the Arizona ruling, saying the ban goes too far. We will go to Arizona later in the broadcast.
