Reversible Abortions? Doctors Question Arizona Law

As of this week, doctors in Arizona who perform early-stage, drug-induced abortions will be required to tell women that the procedure may be reversible – something many doctors say is not true.

The requirement is a provision of a bill signed into law on Monday by Governor Doug Ducey that prevents women from buying health insurance plans on the federal exchange that offer abortion coverage.

Dr. Anne Davis, an obstetrician and gynecologist who is also consulting medical director for Physicians for Reproductive Health, joins Here & Now’s Robin Young to discuss the law.
