Federal Judge: Arizona Abortion Law Can Take Effect

“Arizona’s ban on abortions starting at 20 weeks of pregnancy will take effect this week as scheduled after a federal judge ruled Monday that the new law is constitutional,” reports Fox News.

This is great news. Arkansas Right to Life spearheaded a 20-week ban here in Arkansas during the last legislative session, but it was defeated. From what I can remember, opponents of the law argued that it could be unconstitutional. This ruling on the Arizona law could help us defend the similar effort underway in Arkansas.

Todd Starnes with FOX News reports on this disturbing turn of events here.

This is a direct attack on religious freedom by the city of Phoenix.
