US Supreme Court won't revive Arizona abortion law

PHOENIX - U.S. Supreme Court is refusing to revive an Arizona state law that would have disqualified abortion providers from receiving funding for other medical services they provide.

The high court on Monday declined to hear Attorney General Tom Horne's appeal asking the justices to overturn a federal judge's ruling blocking the 2012 law. That ruling was upheld by an appeals court in August.

The law would have disqualified Planned Parenthood and other health providers that perform abortions from receiving public funds for other services.

The Supreme Court in May refused to revive a similar law in Indiana that also has been blocked.
