Abortion Providers Sue Over New Arizona Law

Abortion providers have filed a federal lawsuit, seeking to block a new state law aimed at preventing them from getting public money. The law allows the director of Arizona’s Medicaid program to disqualify any provider that does not fully separate tax dollars it gets from money it uses to provide abortions.

Elizabeth Nash tracks abortion laws at the state level, she’s the senior state issues associate at the Guttmacher Institute, which favors reproductive rights.
