March 31 (Reuters) - A federal judge rejected on Monday a request by Planned Parenthood and a women's health clinic to block new Arizona regulations that would limit the use of abortion-inducing drugs.

The regulations, which go into effect on Tuesday, would require any medicine used to induce an abortion to be administered strictly according to protocols issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and instructions on the label. (Reporting by Dan Whitcomb; Editing by Cynthia Johnston)
