Rally Exposes Extreme Abortion Agenda
A Statement from Center for Arizona Policy President Cathi Herrod, Esq.
It is the human rights issue of our day. While some states pass extreme laws legalizing abortion to the point of birth, others are fighting to protect the most vulnerable among us and the mothers who carry them.
As pro-abortion activists take to the streets today in protest of commonsense regulations designed to ensure the safety of women considering abortions, let’s not forget what is at stake. Not Planned Parenthood’s bottom line, but the well-being of women, and human life.
At a time when Americans are acknowledging the humanity of the pre-born and the risks of abortion to the mother, Planned Parenthood Arizona is suing the state in an effort to rollback reasonable regulations on the procedure.
The abortion giant wants the courts to undo protective laws designed to allow women considering an abortion to get all the facts, and the time to consider them. A requirement already upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Planned Parenthood claims its concern is for women, but is suing for the right to eliminate in-person doctor visits, so the abortion pill can be dispensed over the internet in a callous, cost-cutting maneuver.
And ignoring the serious, sometimes life-threatening risks associated with abortions, Planned Parenthood argues doctors are not necessary to perform the risky procedure. This, despite the fact that more than 40 states require doctors perform abortions.
It is no secret why abortion activists take to the courts and the streets in protest of commonsense abortion restrictions. They make billions of dollars selling abortions. Any restriction cuts into their profit.
Make no mistake. This is the human rights issue of our day, and the most basic human right is the right to life.
