CAP: Pro-Life Bill Needs Your Support!


The Abortion Consent Act (HB 2564) is ready for debate and vote by the Arizona House of Representatives. This bill is designed to clarify and update our abortion statutes to protect women, children, parents, and the civil rights of healthcare workers.

The bill addresses problems with the statute requiring parental consent before a minor girl receives an abortion, requires that women be given full and accurate information and time to consider that information before an abortion, and protects healthcare workers from being forced to participate in abortion against their moral and religious beliefs.

The abortion industry has been flooding legislators with emails making false claims about the bill's purpose and intent. Legislators need to hear from you TODAY!
