“Arizona has quickly become one of the safest
states for preborn children and women facing crisis pregnancies,” said
Cathi Herrod, President of Center for Arizona Policy. “All credit is due
to Arizona voters who have elected prolife majorities
to the state House and Senate for three consecutive elections,
including the 2012 election.”
“Without these leaders and a prolife governor, none of these laws would have been possible,” said Herrod.
According to AUL, there were 60 new life-affirming
laws passed in states across the nation. The Arizona Legislature set the
pace by enacting legislation to:
·Prohibit most abortions after 20 weeks when the procedure becomes significantly more dangerous.
·Protect taxpayer dollars from going to abortion providers.
·Guarantee that women have and are able to view an
ultrasound at least 24 hours before an abortion and access a new
state-produced website with objective information about the risks and
alternatives to abortion.
·Ensure that abortion providers no longer distribute abortion medication outside of FDA protocol.
