FLAGSTAFF, AZ (AP) -

A clinic is offering pill-induced abortions in Flagstaff after a 2 1/2-year hiatus.

Officials with Planned Parenthood of Arizona made the announcement Monday at the new clinic site in west Flagstaff.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that women who have made the decision to terminate a pregnancy can elect to have an abortion between five and eight weeks at the Flagstaff clinic.

These procedures involve medications and not surgery, which isn't available at the clinic.

Planned Parenthood stopped the abortions at clinics in Flagstaff, Yuma and Prescott Valley in 2011.

That was after the state Legislature specified that only licensed physicians could provide the abortion pill services and had to meet face-to-face with patients 24 hours prior to dispensing the pills.
