Arizona House to consider abortion bills Monday

Two bills scheduled to be considered Monday by the Arizona House would impact the state’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood Arizona.

One bill would apply state requirements for clinics that provide surgical abortions to those that provide only medication abortions. Planned Parenthood says that’d force it to curtail services in clinics in Flagstaff, Prescott and Yuma. Supporters of the bill say it would help protect the health of women.

A second bill would make donations to Planned Parenthood ineligible for a state income tax credit for contributions to groups that serve the working poor. Planned Parenthood says its abortion services are self-funded and that any impact on its donated funding would only affect its family planning and medical services.
