Ninth Circuit Court Blocks Mother’s Health & Safety Act

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has blocked a key provision of HB 2036, known as the Mother’s Health and Safety Act, from taking effect.

Earlier this week, the Arizona District Court upheld the law and denied the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Center for Reproductive Rights’ request to stop it from taking effect.

Yet today, the Ninth Circuit Court ordered that the state couldn’t prohibit most abortions after 20 weeks of a pregnancy, pending oral arguments.

A calendar has been set for both sides to file briefs in the case. Center for Arizona Policy (CAP) is committed to standing for this important law that protects mothers and preborn children from the dangerous practices of the abortion industry.

We remain confident that this law will be upheld and will keep you up to date on any further action.

    I am currently enrolled in Grand Canyon University’s Master’s of Nursing Education program and am taking a class in Ethics and Policy in the Health Care System. I have an assignment to interview a “decision maker of public health policy for a poulation or aggregate”. This person must have planned, created or implemented a health policy. Would Josh Kredit be a good candidate for this project? If so, would he be willing to be interviewed? Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
