Planned Parenthood halted abortions at clinics in Flagstaff, Prescott
Valley, and Yuma because of provisions in state laws that took effect
this month. Legislation passed this year requires that only licensed
physicians provide abortions, while a 2009 law that Planned Parenthood
decided to stop fighting in court requires women seeking abortions to
meet in person with doctors 24 hours before the procedure.
The clinic in Flagstaff and those in Prescott Valley and Yuma have only nurse practitioners on staff.
