Pro-life Progress

Great news.

Starting today and thanks to a Federal District Court seeing through a last ditch effort by Planned Parenthood to stop it, several common sense health and safety standards are now in effect that further protect women and preborn children from the dangerous and deadly practices of the abortion industry.

Cathi memeCAP President Cathi Herrod put it best: “When Planned Parenthood loses, women win.”

Sponsored by Senator Kimberly Yee and signed into law in 2012 as part of the Mother’s Health and Safety Act, these standards require that:

  • The abortion pill must be dispensed in line with Federal Food and Drug Administration protocol, which requires the pill only be dispensed in the first seven weeks of a pregnancy. Currently, abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood ignore this protocol and distribute the abortion pill through nine weeks.
  • Doctors who perform surgical abortions must have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the abortion clinic.
  • Any time an ambulance is needed at an abortion clinic, the incident must be reported to the Arizona Department of Health Services.
  • Signs must be posted in abortion clinics informing women that it is illegal for anyone to coerce them into having an abortion.

Huckabee!

One thing that became very clear during the SB 1062 saga is that religious freedom cannot be taken for granted. The veto of this important bill is a wake up call not just to Arizonans but to all Americans who believe the government should not be able to force you to violate your sincerely held religious beliefs.

Last week, Governor Mike Huckabee flew CAP President Cathi Herrod out to New York to be a guest on his Fox News Channel show Huckabee to discuss the growing hostility towards people of faith, and share the truth about SB 1062, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and what CAP is doing and has done to protect religious liberty. Watch the clip:
