NATIONAL BRIEFING / ARIZONA

Times Wire Reports

A state judge blocked implementation of some provisions of a new law restricting abortions, but allowed others to take effect. The preliminary injunction issued by Judge Donald Daughton of Maricopa County Superior Court allows a 24-hour waiting period to begin, but he blocked requirements that a patient see a doctor in person for disclosures before getting an abortion.

Surviving portions of the law were to take effect today.
