Arizona Judge to Enforce  Near-Total Abortion Ban  

A judge decided on Friday to uphold an almost complete abortion ban that was drafted before Arizona became a state.

Hence, to avoid charging physicians and other healthcare professionals with crimes, clinics statewide will have to stop performing the procedures.

The only situation in which the restriction is lifted is when the woman's life is in danger.

According to the decision, the state's abortion clinics must close, and anyone wanting an abortion must travel outside of the state.

Although there is a chance of an appeal, the decision is effective right away.

Considering that Roe had been overruled in June, Pima County Superior Court Judge Kellie Johnson lifted the injunction on Friday.
