For the last decade the right has chipped away at abortion access by making it more expensive, closing clinics, increasing waiting periods and decreasing gestational limits. But for 2019 Arizona abortion opponents are literally enacting a “death by a thousand paper cuts” agenda against legal abortion through their new paperwork and reporting requirements for doctors performing abortions. None of them are medically necessary, not a single question will provide any benefit to public health, and each one will dramatically raise the amount of resources a clinic uses per patient.
Arizona Abortion Law – 24 Hour Waiting Period Requirement
The State of Arizona mandates by law that you must meet with the doctor at the office at least 24 hours prior to obtaining an abortion. This law does require an extra appointment.
We will also be doing a pregnancy test, an ultrasound, and checking blood type and hemoglobin for anemia. Fees for the testing services are $100 and may be collected on the day services are rendered if you are not scheduling an appointment or do not show up for your scheduled appointment.
At least 24 hours prior to having your abortion, you will need to review the above state mandated information about your abortion in person with the doctor.
Please be sure to read about the different methods. Once you have determined which type of abortion you plan to have, please call the office to schedule your state-mandated with the doctor.
