Women with crisis pregnancies need loving and caring people to come around them in support during their time of need. In a new video, Students for Life exposes the tactics of the largest abortion business in Arizona and the United States.

Dear Bisbee City Attorney:

I write as a representative of Center for Arizona Policy[1] to express my legal opinion concerning the Bisbee City Council’s announced intention to issue civil union certificates.

Center for Arizona Policy encourages Arizona taxpayers to consider four state income tax credits that help Arizona families. To take advantage of these credits, all you have to do is make a donation to a school tuition organization, a charity that serves low income citizens, and a public school district. Then, you can receive dollar-for-dollar credits on your state tax return for each of your donations.

Here is more information on each program:

Individual Tax Credits

l) Individual scholarship tax credit
Individuals may receive a tax credit of up to $503 and married couples may receive a credit of up to $1006 for donations to school tuition organizations (“STOs”). The STOs award scholarships to students whose parents have chosen to send them to a private school. Last year, this program provided over 25,000 scholarships to Arizona children.

CAP recommends Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization or TOPS for Kids.
