Arizona State Senate Republican Leaders Celebrate
Supreme Court’s Historic Decision to Protect Unborn Children
PHOENIX, ARIZONA— Senate Republicans are supporting the decision by the Supreme Court of the United States today to overturn Roe v. Wade, relinquishing power to the states to protect the lives of vulnerable children and expecting mothers.
The Majority Leadership Team is issuing the following statement:
‘This is a monumental day for our nation and for babies. Here we are, finally celebrating the end of an era where the life of a child in the womb could be taken up to the moment of birth, for any reason deemed ‘right’ by the mother. Finally, justice is served for all those babies that never had the chance to live. The states will now decide how to protect mothers and their unborn children. We are praising the good Lord today and thanking SCOTUS for their courage in the face of incredible and physical and political threat. Arizona State Senate Republicans will continue to fight for the sanctity of life, the rule of law, morals, family values and against radical Democrats who aim to change society in some very dark and disturbing ways.”
This legislative session, Arizona Senate Republicans passed SB 1164, championed by Sen. Nancy Barto (R-15), that will ban abortions after 15-weeks, which will take effect in approximately 90 days.
