Two pro-abortion groups filed lawsuits in Arizona and United States federal courts on September 14, 2009. They want the courts to block new Arizona laws that restricting access to abortions. One lawsuit was filed by Planned Parenthood and the other was filed by New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights. The lawsuits challenged two Arizona laws known as House Bill 2564 and Senate Bill 1175. The groups are asking the courts to put the laws on hold until the courts rule on the constitutionality of the laws.
