Action Needed Now to Ban Partial Birth Abortion in Arizona

Arizona Legislature passes Ban on Partial Birth Abortion
Call the Governor now to sign HB 2769

25 March 2008

The Arizona Legislature has passed House Bill 2769 (HB 2769) banning the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion. As you may know, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the federal partial-birth abortion ban last year and many states, including Arizona, are now passing laws to prohibit this horrible procedure. This action is needed to prevent the abortion industry from circumventing laws designed to protect women and children as well as to provide greater authority for states to enforce this law.

It is imperative that Governor Janet Napolitano hear that the people of Arizona want her to sign this legislation.


1. Call Governor Napolitano TODAY at (602) 542-4331 or at (800) 253-0883, or contact the governor by email. Politely ask her to sign the partial-birth abortion ban.

2. Forward this email to others and ask them to contact the Governor TODAY.

Arizona Right to Life applauds the Arizona Legislature in passing this ban as well as the tremendous efforts of the Arizona Catholic Conference and The Center for Arizona Policy in securing its passage.
