Legislature Moves to Protect Preborn Children

Early this afternoon, the Arizona House of Representatives passed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks gestation. Not only are babies at that stage of development fully capable of feeling pain all over their bodies, but abortions done at that stage exponentially increase the mother’s risk of death.

The Legislature wisely passed HB 2036, and it is now headed to Gov. Jan Brewer’s desk for her signature; she has until Monday to sign it.

According to the Center for Arizona Policy, the governor is already receiving tremendous pressure from out-of-state activists not to sign the bill. Encouragement from her own constituents would go a long way toward helping this vital piece of legislation over its final hurdle.
