HB 2665 would amend Arizona’s informed consent law, (A.R.S. §§ 36-2153 & 36-2156) to (1) include rape or incest as an exception to the requirement that the provisions of the statute be fulfilled before a woman’s consent to abortion will be considered “voluntary and informed”; and (2) include rape or incest as an exception to the requirement that an ultrasound be performed prior to an abortion.

STATUS

Similar to HB 2678 and HB 2679, which both failed to pass in 2014, contains the same provisions.
