The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona and the Center for Reproductive Rights filed an emergency motion Saturday in an effort to block the state's 2021 "personhood" law that they argue could be used to ban all abortions in Arizona.
The U.S. Supreme Court handed down a ruling Friday overturning Roe v. Wade, meaning states can now enforce their own laws regarding abortion rights.
Arizona has two abortion laws, one from more than 100 years ago that bans all abortions and one signed earlier this year that prohibits the procedure after 15 weeks with exceptions for cases to save the mother's life.
Saturday's motion challenges a 2021 law prohibiting abortions sought because an unborn child has a survivable genetic abnormality. That law makes it a felony for a doctor to terminate a pregnancy because of a genetic abnormality. The legislation also includes a "personhood" provision.
