Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed a pro-life bill that the states pro-life groups were pressing for her to sign after approval by the state legislature. HB 2284 would make sure that abortion clinics are treated the same as other medical facilities by allowing for unannounced inspections.
arizonalogoHeres what Center for Arizona Policy President Cathi Herrod has to say about it in an email to LifeNews:
Arizonas thriving pro-life movement has had another tremendous victory today as Governor Brewer has signed the Womens Health Protection Act (HB 2284).
This law ensures abortion clinics are subject to the same inspection standards as all other medical facilities in the state. Abortion clinic inspections matter, and it is unconscionable that they would be exempt from common-sense health and safety standards.
I am tremendously grateful to the bills sponsor, Rep. Debbie Lesko who championed this important legislation and all the legislators that voted for HB 2284. Governor Jan Brewer is also owed a debt of gratitude for standing up to the attacks and distortions from Planned Parenthood to carry on her tremendous legacy as the nations most pro-life governor.
Today we celebrate this victory, but our work will never be done until every woman and preborn child is protected from the dangerous and deadly practices of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry.
Arizona Right to Life also supported the bill: Surely, Planned Parenthood and pro-choice elected representatives look hypocritical by opposing such common sense legislation. Paradoxically, the real war on women is being waged by the pro-choice community, not those who are honestly and lovingly wanting what is truly best for both woman and child. If clean, safe and well-regulated abortion clinics are the goal of Planned Parenthood, then they would not oppose this bill, no matter who sponsors it.
Look for the people who oppose this to want stricter inspections and regulations of gun shops.
My friend is a Nail Tech /Manicurist with her own shop in Western MA.
She gets “surprise inspections” ALL the time...so many that it’s not even a surprise anymore.
The irony is that the feminists use the euphemism “Women’s healthcare providers” to describe the loathsome chambers of horror that are abortion mills.
You can’t have it both ways. If it is a “Healthcare provider”, let it be subject to the laws and regulations that govern clinics, nursing homes, outpatient surgical facilities, and even Nail Salons.
I hate the way the left has co-opted our language.
WOW. Amazing that she signed this. Especially after her going wobbly on several things of late.
The media are too distracted with trying to justify taking (and killing) an old man’s cows and kick him off his land so that a corrupt reptile of a politician can sell it to the Chinese and pocket a bunch of cash. That’s the only reason this bill didn’t become a “War on Women.”
It is high TIME they inspect and disinfect these horrid Abortion CHAMBERS!
They also need to EXORCIZE the Abortion Chambers!
So, up until now they weren’t subject to these Inspections?
I am a little stunned that they have been exempt from inspection.
