New pro-life laws in at least two states are headed to court after abortion advocates filed lawsuits to stop them from going into effect.
In Arizona, a lawsuit filed Aug. 17 seeks to overturn a law banning abortions performed solely because of genetic abnormalities such as Down syndrome. The law also bans mail delivery of abortion-inducing medication and requires fetal remains to be buried or cremated.
In Montana, Planned Parenthood is attempting to stop four new pro-life laws from going into effect Oct. 1. Among other things, the laws ban abortion after 20 weeks, restrict access to abortion pills and require abortion providers to offer pregnant women ultrasounds.
