Arizona ban on abortion after 20 weeks struck down by federal court

The Guardian – A federal court on Tuesday struck down Arizona&#39;s ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, absent a medical emergency.<br />
The 9th US circuit court of appeals said the law violated a woman&#39;s constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy before a foetus is able to survive outside the womb. &quot;Viability&quot; of a foetus is generally considered to start at 24 weeks; normal pregnancies run about 40 weeks. Nine other states have enacted similar bans, starting at 20 weeks or earlier. Several of those bans have been placed on hold or struck down by other courts. <a href="" target="_blank">Lire la suite</a></p>
