Pro-lifer praises new law that protects 'vulnerable children' in womb

pregnancy ultrasoundArizona’s governor has signed a bill protecting the unborn and their mothers, and pro-lifers are celebrating legislation that defends the most vulnerable.  

Governor Doug Ducey has signed Senate Bill 1457 into law which Cathy Herrod of the Center for Arizona Policy says will prohibit discrimination against unborn children if they have a treatable condition such as Down syndrome and Cystic Fibrosis.

“Abortions of these special vulnerable children will no longer be legal in the state of Arizona,” she tells One News Now.

The measure would also ban delivery of potentially dangerous abortion drugs by mail or courier.

According to the new law, only a doctor can determine whether abortion chemicals are appropriate for a patient and that is required 24 hours before taking the first of two abortion pills.

“It's astounding,” Herrod observes, “that the abortion industry thinks it's okay, and even good, for women to send chemical abortion pills through the mail. Most women don't know the actual stage of their pregnancy.”

Regarding the always-expected legal challenge, it would likely go before the left-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. But both sides of the abortion issue are aware of a ruling from the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld an Ohio abortion law, and that legal fight could find its ways before the U.S. Supreme Court for a major ruling.
