Planned Parenthood files suit against Arizona

Arizona – Planned Parenthood has filed a lawsuit against the state of Arizona. As reported by Reuters, the organization filed the suit last week in an effort to reverse a legal measure that prevents its health clinics from obtaining funding.

As noted in the report, Arizona is one of several states that have introduced measures to block Planned Parenthood funding due to abortions being formed. The organization says abortions account for a very small percentage of its services.

Bryan Howard, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood Arizona, is quoted in the report as stating of the issue, “It is wrong for the state to tell Arizonans who they can and cannot see for their healthcare. The men and women of this state have the right to see the healthcare provider they deem is best for them.”

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Arizona.
