Arizona Reproductive Rights


On May 2, 2024, H.B 2677 was signed into law, repealing the 1864 near-total abortion ban. This repeal will take effect on September 14, 2024. 

Enforcement of the 1864-era ban has been stayed by court orders until at least September 27, 2024.  Because the repeal will be effective before September 27, that means the territorial ban will not take effect in Arizona, so long as current court orders remain in place.

Accordingly, Arizonans can still obtain, and providers cannot be prosecuted for, providing abortion care in accordance with Title 36.

Arizonans take pride in their personal freedom and their privacy. The decision of how and when to grow one’s family is deeply personal and private. 

Arizonans deserve to decide what’s right for their families on their own terms, in consultation with their doctors, significant others, and faith communities, as they deem appropriate. 

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office provides clear and credible information about reproductive health care access in the state. Empowered with objective facts and context, Arizonans can make informed decisions about their reproductive health.
