PHOENIX - A Planned Parenthood Arizona lawsuit challenging a 2009 state law restricting abortion services has been dismissed.
An order signed by a judge Monday implements an agreement between the abortion provider and anti-abortion groups. The agreement stems from a state Court of Appeals ruling in August that upheld most of the challenged provisions of the 2009 law.
Those provisions are now in effect. They include requirements for an in-person briefing by a physician to a woman getting an abortion and a ban on non-physicians performing surgical abortions.
Planned Parenthood had announced previously it would not appeal the Court of Appeals ruling.
There's still a lawsuit pending that challenges 2011 abortion restrictions that include a prohibition against non-physicians performing medication abortions.
However, provisions of the 2011 law also have taken effect.
