Arizona: Offering to cancel medical abortion “after the event” will not be an obligation for doctors

Publié le : 17 June 2015

Yesterday, the Advocate General of Arizona announced his decision not to validate the most controversial part of the new abortion law, namely the section that obliges doctors to explain to women who have just undergone a medical procedure that the latter can be cancelled within a certain time limit.      

                                                                                                                               

No scientific study has been carried out to confirm that medical abortions can be cancelled after the event” declared opponents to this approach.

 

As for doctors, they believe that it is “unconstitutional” to force them to say something which goes against their medical judgement.

 

The aim of this new abortion law is to exclude abortion from the list of procedures that can be refunded by the Affordable Care Act.
