Good News: Arizona Takes Huge Pro-Life Step After Gov. Doug Ducey Does This

The Governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, just signed into law a powerful new bill relating to abortion.

Specifically, the bill stops abortions done because of a “genetic abnormality”.

That includes unborn children with a Down’s syndrome diagnosis, but could also include many other disabilities.

Here’s the details:

The bill makes it a Class 6 felony to perform an abortion solely due to the existence of a genetic abnormality, or to threaten or intimidate a woman into having an abortion because of a genetic abnormality.

This is great news for unborn children in the state of Arizona, but there’s more:

The law requires the abortion provider to complete an affidavit stating the child is not being aborted due to an abnormality. It also requires the abortion provider to inform the mother that abortion sought because of the child’s race, sex, or genetic abnormality, is illegal.

“With this legislation, Arizona remains among the top pro-life states in the nation,” the governor’s Office said in a press release.

All of this is a good start, but there’s a reason this is such a huge move for Arizona:

Additionally, the bill bans the dispensing of abortion-inducing drugs through the mail, requires fetal remains to be buried or cremated, prohibits public education facilities from performing abortions unless the mother’s life is in danger, and bars taxpayer funds from supporting research that involves aborted babies or embryos.

Of course, Democrats weren’t happy, with Rep. Diego Espinoza calling the bill “anti-families, anti-woman, and anti-doctor”.

But the reality is, as usual, the complete opposite to what Democrats say it is.

This is a huge win for unborn children and their families in Arizona!
