Due to scheduled maintenance by the Arizona Department of Administration to the state datacenter, azdhs.gov and related services will be unavailable from 10:00 p.m. Friday, November 15, until 10:00 a.m. Saturday, November 16. Thank you for your patience.
In April 2012 Governor Brewer signed HB 2036, which amends state law regarding abortions. While many provisions of HB 2036 are pending legal challenges, the provisions requiring ADHS to develop a website were unaffected. This new informed consent site meets requirements of the law for ADHS to maintain a website that lists agencies and services that are available to assist a woman throughout her pregnancy, as well as information about fetal development and abortion procedures.
