After the Supreme Court rejected Arizona’s bid to put in place its ban on most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy Monday, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s office released this statement:
Governor Brewer has championed to make Arizona one of the most pro-life states in the nation. Her signature on the Mother’s Health and Safety Act -legislation that bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy — is consistent with her proud and proven track record as the most pro-life governor in Arizona history. The Supreme Court’s decision to deny cert in this case is wrong, and is a clear infringement on the authority of states to implement critical life-affirming laws. Governor Brewer will continue to fight to protect Arizona women, families and our most vulnerable population — unborn children.
