Repeal Appropriate Response to Lawsuit

A Statement from Center for Arizona Policy President Cathi Herrod, Esq.

I maintain the position that no one should be bullied for any reason, and each case of schoolyard bullying should be handled individually.  We’ve seen no evidence to support the claim that current law is linked to any such bullying. However, the unfortunate, continued misrepresentation of the law perpetuates a skewed view of its intent.

Although Center for Arizona Policy did not exist during the law’s passage in 1991, the intent of the law has never been to show animus toward any group of people.

Upon review of the lawsuit, which reads more like a political statement than a legal pleading, I support and agree with efforts by Arizona lawmakers to repeal the current law’s contested provisions.

The law applies only to AIDS education. We should all be able to agree that AIDS instruction should be medically accurate and age appropriate.


Center for Arizona Policy promotes and defends the foundational values of life, marriage and family, and religious freedom. For more information, visit
