Arizona obstetricians and gynecologists are hoping that history does not repeat itself.
In 2012, the Arizona legislature passed a law that forced physicians to prescribe medication with an outdated FDA protocol.
That law forced doctors to practice against the standard of care.
It was disingenuously sold as protecting women’s health. Except it didn’t.
That law was extensively litigated in both state and federal court, at the taxpayer’s expense. It was found in violation of the Arizona constitution and overturned.
Now, Arizona lawmakers are at it again with SB1324.
