Arizona lawmakers approve abortion bill, send to governor

By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) – Arizona lawmakers on Wednesday passed a controversial measure blocking women from buying insurance that includes abortion coverage through the federal health care exchange. The fiercely-debated bill also requires doctors to tell women they could possibly reverse the effects of a drug-induced abortion, a claim that critics called “junk science.” The legislation was approved by an 18-11 vote in the Republican-controlled Senate, with two Democrats voting for it. It now goes to Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey, who has not indicated whether he will sign or veto the bill. Supporters said the bill would prevent taxpayer money from paying for abortion services, as many individuals insured through the federally-run exchange receive government subsidies.
