Arizona’s Roe v Wade?


Arizona’s Roe v Wade?

On Tuesday, the CAP policy team will attend the Arizona Court of Appeals hearing on the 2009 Abortion Consent Act in Planned Parenthood v Horne. This case could decide if there is a greater right to an abortion in the Arizona Constitution than in the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision.

The Abortion Consent Act, which was signed by Governor Brewer but challenged in court soon after, includes provisions to:

  • Ensure that a parent’s signature authorizing an abortion for their minor daughter be notarized before the abortion can happen.
  • Provide women with greater informed consent protections.
  • Protect health care professionals from being forced to perform abortions if they have sincerely held moral or religious pro-life beliefs.

Guarantee that non-doctors cannot perform surgical abortions.

Follow me on Twitter or CAP on Twitter and Facebook to get up-to-the-moment updates from the hearing. Please be in prayer for a favorable outcome.

The Eggsploitation of Women

There are just a handful of seats for Monday night’s screening of Eggsploitation at Arizona Christian University at 7:00 p.m. Immediately following the screening there will be a panel discussion with some of the nation’s leading experts on egg donation:

  • Jennifer Lahl, Executive Producer of Eggsploitation and President of the Center for Bioethics and Culture.
  • Nik Nikas, President and General Counsel of the Bioethics Defense Fund.
  • Brett Harvey, Senior Legal Counsel for Alliance Defense Fund.

Deborah Sheasby, CAP’s Legal Counsel, and I will also be on the panel. To guarantee your seat you must RSVP. We won’t be able to take walk-ups and you won’t want to miss this unique event!

Elections are Closer Than You Think!

Election season is right around the corner – and I’m not talking about the Presidential primary. Throughout Arizona, city elections will be held in August and November. CAP is currently working on compiling a City Voter Guide for Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma, and Prescott, and will post the responses at azvoterguide.com.

But first things first: You have to be registered to vote! June 26 and July 3 are Voter Registration Sundays, and we have plenty of Voter Registration Kits to help you start your drive at your church.

CAP Policy Intern, Michal Ann Morrison, wrote a blog post this week about how just a few votes have made the difference in some very important elections. Check it out; then order your Voter Registration kit here.

  1. Theres no reason anybody should not register to vote anymore, considering you can do so online. Seriously, none. I did it through http://www.registertovote.org, which does it through the government site for you because the government site can be a bit complicated. All you need these days is a computer and a couple minutes of your time. If you dont vote, you cant be pissed when the government doesnt do what you want.

  2. I just registered at registertovote.org also. Pretty darn simple. Thanks for the post.
