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.

Planned Parenthood and the Tempe School District

Parents always have the right to protect their children from exposure to sexual materials in school. It’s important for families to be vigilant, especially when their school district is choosing curriculum.

On January 7, a Planned Parenthood representative presented three different sexual education curricula to the Tempe School Board.

Thankfully, families across the East Valley heard about this presentation and turned out to make their voices heard in this discussion, causing the Tempe School Board to wait before deciding which curriculum to choose.

While this was a victory for the day, the fight is far from over, as the school board will be having another meeting to hear two more curriculum options on Tuesday, February 4 at 4:30 p.m. at Desert Vista High School’s Media Center.

It is critical that as many people turn out as possible to ensure Planned Parenthood’s pro-abortion agenda isn’t allowed to influence the school board’s decision. For more information on how you can get involved, contact Peggy McClain.

Video: Abortion. No matter what. — The Planned Parenthood Project

Planned Parenthood is about abortion. No matter what.

It is appalling that Planned Parenthood is taking advantage of vulnerable women in Arizona and around the country – purely to turn a profit. 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.

Governor Jan Brewer recently signed into law HB 2800, the Whole Woman’s Health Funding Priority Act.

The new law ensures that abortion providers do not receive any family planning funds that pass through the state.

Planned Parenthood and other abortion supporters have been in hysteria over this law from the beginning of session. They’ve painted a doomsday scenario in the press, claiming this bill will deny low-income families access to medical care.

But as in most cases with Planned Parenthood media campaigns, the facts are not on their side. (more…)

Religious Freedom Wins: Governor signs HB 2625
