A measure that would amend the state constitution to protect abortion rights could be on the ballot in the 2024 election, if the Arizona Abortion Access Act receives enough signatures.

The initiative needs roughly 384,000 valid signatures to be on the ballot, and organizers said in April they had collected over 500,000.

It’s important for the campaign to keep collecting signatures because opponents to the ballot measure are expected to challenge the signatures, and signatures can be thrown out in court if they aren’t valid.

The constitutional amendment would restore abortion access in Arizona up to the point of fetal viability, which is typically 24 weeks. It would allow abortions at any point of the pregnancy if needed to protect the physical or mental health of the pregnant person, and it would prohibit any future laws that would punish anyone for aiding someone in getting an abortion.

The deadline for organizers to get signatures to the secretary of state is July 3. Want to add your name? Check out every place Arizona for Abortion Access says it has people accepting signatures:
