The Arizona Court of Appeals blocked a judge's decision that allowed immediate enforcement of a pre-statehood law that criminalizes nearly all abortions. The ruling means that abortions can again take place in Arizona. The three-judge panel agreed with Planned Parenthood that the judge should not have lifted the order blocking the law's enforcement, an order that came about when Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. The new order says Planned Parenthood had shown they are likely to prevail on an appeal of the decision.
