Arizona Bill Restricting Medication Abortions (SB 1324)
This law was last updated on Jun 28, 2016
SB 1324 would require any medication, drug or other substance used to induce or cause a medication abortion be administered according to the “Mifeprex final printing label protocol” that the federal Food and Drug Administration approved and was in effect as of Dec. 31, 2015.
Under this protocol, physicians would be prohibited from prescribing the medications to women who are more than seven weeks pregnant, unlike the current protocol, which allows the medication to be administered to women who are up to nine weeks pregnant.
The bill would also require the second dose of medication to be taken at a doctor’s office or clinic instead of at home.
Approved by Gov. Ducey (R) on March 30, 2016.
