AZ Planned Parenthood Facilities Eliminating Some Abortion Services After Losing Lawsuit

The announcement comes on the heels of an appellate court ruling that upheld a 2009 law placing new restrictions on the procedure — including the requirement that nurse practitioners no longer perform surgical abortions. . . .
