Landmark Late-Term Abortion Limit Appealed to U.S. Supreme Court

“Horne v. Isaacson may well be the landmark case that leads the Supreme Court to acknowledge the health risks of abortion for women and girls,” said AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (09-30-13) – In what may prove to be a landmark abortion case, the Attorney General of Arizona and the Maricopa County (Arizona) Attorney on Friday appealed Arizona’s law that limits abortions after five months of pregnancy to the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the Court to reverse a disappointing ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit that the law violated Roe v. Wade. Attorneys with Americans United for Life (AUL), the legal architects of the pro-life movement, are serving as co-counsel with the Arizona Attorney General and the Maricopa County Attorney’s office on the appeal that was filed Friday.
