Two pro-choice groups have filed a lawsuit against new regulations in Arizona that can limit the use of the most popular abortion-inducing drug in the state.
According to Planned Parenthood Arizona and the Center for Reproductive Rights, the new regulations are unconstitutional and would severely hamper a woman's right to a non-surgical abortion.
AdvertisementThe new laws, which are supposed to go into effect from April 1, state that the drug, RU-486, should be administered only at the dosage approved by the Food and Drug Administration no later than seven weeks into pregnancy and the drug is to be taken only at the clinic.
Stating that the new laws go against years of scientific research, Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said, "Arizona politicians have imposed restrictions that go against years of scientific research and doctors' practical experience in yet another effort to block women's access to safe and legal abortion."
