Voter Registration Weekends
Step #1: Mark your calendar!
Elections have a tremendous impact on the future of our state. They are your opportunity to ensure your values are represented and voice is heard! That’s why it’s so critical to be registered to vote.
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:
CAP President Cathi Herrod put it best this week when she went on NBC 12 with Mark Curtis to debate the new abortion clinic regulations that DHS released this week:
“This is not a pro-life or pro-choice issue. These are common sense regulations.”
The purpose of these provisions, which were a part of the 2012 Mother’s Health and Safety Act, sponsored by Sen. Kimberly Yee is simple: they are a step toward protecting women’s health and safety in Arizona. Regardless of where you stand on abortion, why would you oppose only dispensing the dangerous and deadly abortion pill in line with FDA protocol? Or why shouldn’t doctors who perform surgical abortions – which come with countless risks – have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals?

I was personally moved by the stories of Vanessa Tedesco and Nancy Brady. But, there was someone else who stuck out of the crowd like a sore thumb – that was Mike Stafford.
Mike wasn’t sure if he wanted to interview with me initially. But, as I began to walk away, he stopped me and asked to share his story. He said he had only shared the story once before in his life. Yet ultimately he decided it might help people understand how abortion also impacts men through lost fatherhood.
Here is Mike’s story:
