Arizona House Advances Repeal of State's Near-Total Abortion Ban, Debate Moves to Senate

The Arizona House of Representatives has advanced a bill to repeal the state's near-total abortion ban, which dates back to 1864, to the state Senate. The debate over the repeal has sparked political divisions among lawmakers, with three Republicans joining Democrats in support of the measure. If the repeal is approved by the Senate and signed by the Governor, Arizona would allow abortions up to 15 weeks, potentially replacing the current 1864 law that limits most abortions.
