Notable cases

Arizona abortion ban (2012)

     United States District Court for the District of Arizona
In July 2012, Judge Teilborg agreed with the State of Arizona's law restricting abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. He found it constitutional on the basis that women are still able to obtain an abortion, and because the state explained that the fetus could feel pain after that amount of time. Previously, Arizona had banned abortions after viability, a difference of four weeks. Two groups announced their intention to appeal the decision to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, stating that Judge Teilborg's ruling ignored constitutional precedent.[5]
