The Associated Press is reporting that a state judge has blocked implementation of key parts of a new Arizona law restricting abortion.  See our story on this earlier this month, and one from last week.

According to AP:

Judge
Donald Daughton of Maricopa County Superior Court late Tuesday issued a
preliminary injunction granting most of a request by Planned
Parenthood, the state’s largest abortion provider.

A federal judge later refused to issue a preliminary injunction requested in a related but narrower challenge.

AP stated that:

Daughton’s
order allows a 24-hour waiting period to take effect, but blocks parts
requiring that a woman see a doctor in person for advance disclosures
before getting an abortion.

Other blocked provisions include a
requirement that parental consents for a minor’s abortion be notarized
and a ban on nurse practitioners performing abortions.
