Following the Arizona Supreme Court upholding an 1864 total abortion ban, Gov. Katie Hobbs and Attorney General Kris Mayes, both Democrats, launched to educate Arizona women about their healthcare rights and resources.

The new website includes information on where to find reproductive healthcare providers and resources, as well as a “Frequently Asked Questions” section.

“The Arizona Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the 1864 total abortion ban left millions of women and doctors wondering what their rights are when seeking or providing reproductive health care. I’m proud to deliver this comprehensive website to provide timely updates, trusted resources, and a safe venue to seek reproductive health care options,” said Governor Hobbs.

The website notes that since information regarding the implementation of the abortion ban is still shifting, the website will be updated as new information and resources become available.

In terms of resources, the website breaks the information into three categories – mental health, birth control, and resources for residents under the age of 18. The Find a Provider tab helps website users find a provider either within the state or outside of Arizona.

“In the wake of the Arizona Supreme Court’s decision to reimpose a near-total abortion ban from 1864, it is important for us to provide accurate, up-to-date information to Arizonans,” said Mayes. “I am grateful for the partnership with Governor Hobbs’ office as we compiled the resources and information available on this website. We’ll continue working to keep Arizonans informed as the legal landscape around reproductive care evolves in the weeks and months ahead.”
