Senate passes sweeping anti-abortion measure
The measure brings pro-life advocates closer to their goal of blunting the impact of Roe v. Wade, the decades-old U.S. Supreme Court ruling that gave women the right to an abortion.
In an amicus brief, Speaker-elect J.D. Mesnard, Senate President-elect Steve Yarbrough and Gov. Doug Ducey’s Office of Office of Strategic Planning & Budgeting told the Arizona Supreme Court that Proposition 206, will impose a “significant hardship” on the Legislature and Arizona’s taxpayers.
