PHOENIX – A bill to ban most abortions in the state of Arizona has been introduced in the state legislature.
The bill, called the Arizona Heartbeat Act, limits how long a woman can wait to determine whether to terminate a pregnancy through abortion. Some other rules in the bill include:
- “… A doctor may not perform or induce an abortion on a pregnant woman if the doctor detects a fetal heartbeat for the fetus.” (Section 36-2323)
- “In legal proceedings for an amount of $ 10,000 or more for each abortion performed or induced by the defendant in violation of Title 36, Chapter 23, Article 3 and for each abortion performed or induced in violation of Title 36, Chapter 23, Article 3 in which the accused collaborated or assisted “. (Section 12-783)
- “Notwithstanding any other law, a civil action under this section may not be initiated by a person who became pregnant with the aborted patient by an act of sexual assault or incest.” (Section 12-783)
The pro-election supporter sounds off; pro-life march scheduled for January 15th
Election advocates say that if something like this happens, it could endanger women’s lives.
“It really forces people to make tough decisions,” Murphy Bannerman told Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona. “Or they’ll have to go out of state to get the care they need; they’ve seen it in Texas, and people have to go to neighboring states to get the care they need, and that’s hard for them. they don’t have the resources to travel out of state. “
We have contacted the main sponsor of the House Bill 2483, State MP Teresa Martinez, and we are awaiting a response.
