Tuesday's decision from the Arizona Supreme Court allowing the state to outlaw elective abortions except in cases where the mother's life is in danger has prompted differing responses from pro-life leaders and former President Donald Trump. 

The Arizona high court reversed a lower court ruling in a Tuesday decision and upheld a state law established in 1864, later reenacted in 1977 and re-affirmed in 2022, according to a summary of the case posted by the conservative legal nonprofit Alliance Defending Freedom. 

While many leaders in the pro-life movement praised the decision, Republican leaders like Donald Trump and Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake criticized the law enacted before Arizona was a state.
