Center for Arizona Policy will be vigorously working to oppose the lawsuit filed today by Planned Parenthood to challenge Arizona's new abortion laws.
"The Arizona abortion laws challenged today protect women, children, parents, and the civil rights of health care workers," says Cathi Herrod, CAP President. "The law simply clarifies and updates current Arizona abortion law to remedy real-world problems. I am fully confident that the law will be upheld in state court as each measure meets constitutional standards."
The new laws ensuring that consent to abortion is meaningful for patients, parents, and providers are scheduled to take effect on September 30, 2009. You can read more about thispro-life legislation that CAP supportedonline.
