FLAGSTAFF - Planned Parenthood says it’s ending abortion services in three Arizona cities to comply with state laws that placed restrictions on abortions.
Women [or any person] no longer can get abortions at Planned Parenthood clinics in Prescott Valley, Flagstaff and Yuma, starting Friday. Those clinics had been providing the service through medication.
The move came a week after an Arizona appeals court allowed key parts of a 2009 state law restricting abortions to take effect. That includes a requirement that women see a doctor in person the day before getting an abortion to hear about risks and alternatives.
