Sinema: Abortion ban in Arizona removes ‘basic rights’ of women

More than a dozen states either had trigger bans go into effect after the Supreme Court overturned Roe in June or passed legislation banning it since then. Many bans do not include exceptions for rape or incest.

State Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) had urged the judge to allow the state to enforce the ban. 

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) criticized a near-total abortion ban that a judge upheld in her state, saying Saturday that it removes the “basic rights” of women.
