Arizona Supreme Court grants stay, preventing 1864 abortion ban from taking effect

Arizona Supreme Court

The Arizona Supreme Court on Monday granted state Attorney General Kris Mayes’ request to delay the enforcement of the state’s 1864 abortion ban, preventing it from taking effect for the next several months.

The state’s high court granted a 90-day stay of the 1864 law on Monday, meaning the ban cannot be enforced until Aug

This will give Mayes more time to appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court should her office decide to take that route. Without Monday’s ruling, the Civil War-era law could have become fully enforced on June 27 at the earliest.

It comes weeks after Gov. Katie Hobbs (D) signed a repeal of the ban passed by the state legislature. The repeal, however, does not take effect until 90 days after the state legislature adjourns for the year.
