Arizona Senate Votes to Repeal 1864 Abortion Ban, Bill Heads to Governor

The Arizona Senate has voted to repeal a Civil War-era ban on nearly all abortions, following a similar vote in the House. The bill now heads to Governor Katie Hobbs, who has promised to sign it. However, the repeal may not take effect immediately due to procedural hurdles, and the ban could temporarily take effect in June before being repealed. The move comes after the state's highest court ruled to allow the 1864 ban to be enforced, sparking public outcry and political backlash.
