(KYMA, KECY) - Planned Parenthood Arizona asks for an immediate stay of the Pima County Superior Court's new ruling decision to ban abortion.
President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Arizona, Brittany Fonteno released the following statement:
"Planned Parenthood Arizona is seeking an immediate stay of the Pima County Superior Court's ruling that lifted the injunction on the state's 1864 abortion ban.
"The court's decision has allowed conflicting laws to take effect and has caused immediate confusion, even among our state's highest elected officials, as to the status of abortion access in Arizona.
"This confusion has forced Planned Parenthood Arizona to pause abortion services and cancel appointments scheduled this week – meaning that members of our community once again have been and will continue to be denied medical care that they deserve and need while this decision is in effect. This is unacceptable.
"Planned Parenthood Arizona is therefore asking the court to issue a stay of its ruling while the legal process continues to unfold and we continue to seek clarity for our patients and providers.”
