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.

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?

Holly Patterson had just celebrated her 18th birthday. The bright, energetic young woman who had just completed high school one year ahead of schedule had so much to live for.  After finding out she was pregnant, Holly and her boyfriend went to a local Planned Parenthood clinic where Holly was given abortion medication.  Over the next several days, Holly found herself in agony. With only pain pills and an anti-nausea drug to abate the symptoms of a growing and deadly infection, her health began to deteriorate. (more…)
