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?
