Arizona won a victory against Planned Parenthood, the abortion and women’s health provider, after an appellate court removed the group’s injunction against state legislation that interfered with its activities, reports CNSNews.com.

The Arizona chapter of Planned Parenthood had spurred the injunction against Gov. Jan Brewer’s 2009 law that set several requirements for those seeking an abortion in the state. Requirements of the Abortion Consent Act include stipulations that minors have to get parental approval before undergoing the procedure, and pharmacists and health professionals have the right to refuse certain procedures and drug prescriptions, such as emergency contraception, if they have personal moral or religious objections.

“This is a great day for Arizona women and parents," Brewer said. The law “empowers women by giving them the objective information they need prior to deciding whether to have an abortion. Women deserve all the facts from their physician, in person, before making such a critical decision. Today’s court decision will help guarantee that."

Planned Parenthood of Arizona chief Bryan Howard has said the law is “likely unconstitutional,” reported The Arizona Republic. He also said that the lifting of the injunction against Brewer’s law “puts the health and well-being of women at risk by restricting their access to comprehensive care.”
