What We Believe In

  • Can I still get an abortion in Arizona?
    Yes––for a short period of time, you can still obtain an abortion through 15 weeks of pregnancy. Because of a ruling in Isaacson v. Brnovich (a separate case), the near-total ban on abortions cannot be enforced until 45 days after the Arizona Supreme Court issues its mandate. We expect the mandate to be released at the end of April.
  • What does the 1864 abortion ban entail?
    The 1864 near-total ban on abortion brings Arizona back to the Civil War era––before Arizona even became a state, before women had the right to vote, and while slavery was still legal. This ban prohibits abortion in all cases and during all stages of pregnancy, except when the pregnant person's life is in danger. There are no exceptions for rape or incest.
  • What is Planned Parenthood v. Mayes?
    Planned Parenthood of Arizona v. Kristin K. Mayes is an Arizona state-level court case where the Arizona Supreme Court lifted a stay on an near-total abortion ban that was previously stayed after Roe v. Wade made the law moot/invalid. In their opinion on Planned Parenthood of Arizona v. Kristin K. Mayes, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that an 1864 near-total ban on abortion should be restored, as opposed to the current 15-week abortion ban. This was a 4-2 decision by the Court. The majority opinion was written by Justice Lopez, and Justices Bolick, Beene, and King signed onto it. The dissenting opinion was written by Vice Chief Justice Timmer, and Chief Justice Brutinel signed onto it.
  • Where can I get an abortion in Arizona?
    Before the near-total ban on abortion is enforced, these clinics are still providing abortion services in Arizona: Desert Star Institute for Family Planning - Phoenix Planned Parenthood - Glendale Planned Parenthood - Tempe Planned Parenthood - Tucson Camelback Family Planning - Phoenix Please reference their websites, social media pages, and other feeds for more information on their current services offered, which may change at any time.
  • Can I get prosecuted for having an abortion?
    The 1864 ban would throw providers and those who aid and abet in abortions in jail for a minimum 2-year sentence. However, until the abortion ban is enforced (see Is abortion legal in Arizona?), you cannot be prosecuted for having or providing a legal abortion within the first 15-weeks of pregnancy. After the ban becomes enforceable (45 days after the Arizona Supreme Court issues their mandate), the answer is still cloudy: Last year, Governor Katie Hobbs issued an executive order that stripped county attorneys (similar to district attorneys) of their ability to prosecute anyone for having or providing an abortion. She gave the sole power to prosecute abortions to Democratic Attorney General Kris Mayes. Attorney General Kris Mayes has promised that she will not prosecute pregnant people or their doctors for having an abortion, but there is always a possibility that future legal action could force her office to prosecute. In addition, future Attorneys General could potentially retroactively prosecute. Therefore, it is important to use great caution when obtaining or searching for abortion care, whether in-state or out-of-state.
  • How can I keep my reproductive health data protected?
    Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes recently issued a guide which provides insight and resources for protecting your reproductive healthcare data. View the guide here.
  • How do we reverse this abortion ban?
    In November, voters will have the opportunity to vote YES on the Arizona for Abortion Access initiative, which enshrines the right to abortion in the state constitution. That will reverse this Arizona Supreme Court ruling and make abortion legal until fetal viability (approx. 23-24 weeks), or later for physical or mental health concerns. We also need to flip the legislature to pass reproductive freedom measures that protect the right to IVF, contraception, and more healthcare decisions, and stop unnecessary restrictions on abortion care. Volunteer with Keep Arizona Blue Student Coalition to mobilize young Arizonans and both enshrine abortion in our state's constitution, and flip the legislature! Sign up here and a member of our team will reach out with more information.
