PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in the case against the state's new abortion rules.

Horne filed a request asking the court to review a 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision that put the regulations on medication abortion on hold while a lawsuit against them plays out in federal court in Tucson.

That case has been put on hold while the state appeals to the Supreme Court.

The rules ban women from taking the most common abortion-inducing drug after the seventh week of pregnancy. Women had been allowed to take the abortion pill through nine weeks of pregnancy. They also require the drug be administered only at the Food and Drug Administration-approved dosage and that both doses be taken at a clinic.
