McGrane, Other County Attorneys Urge Governor Hobbs to Rescind Abortion Order


Twelve of Arizona’s 15 county attorneys are calling for Governor Katie Hobbs to rescind her recent executive order that limits them from prosecuting abortion-related cases. The attorneys, including Yavapai County Attorney Dennis McGrane, sent a letter to Hobbs saying the governor’s office should not interfere with the discretion of prosecutors in fulfilling their duties as elected officials. A spokesman for Governor Hobbs says she will not rescind the order. Hobbs’ June 22nd order gave state Attorney General Kris Mayes the power to handle any attempted county prosecution under state abortion laws. Abortions are currently allowed in Arizona in the first 15 weeks of pregnancy under a 2022 law.
