REPORT: Arizona Legislature allows questions before abortions


DML News brings you the following information from ABC15.COM:

Republicans who control the Arizona Legislature have approved legislation requiring abortion clinics to ask women if they are victims of sex assault, incest or sex trafficking and provide the patient with ways to contact law enforcement.

The measure goes to Gov. Doug Ducey for his expected signature following Wednesday’s Senate vote.

The article went on to state the following:

The vote came two days after the House approved the measure after hours of debate.

The legislation boosts provider reporting requirements, and requires doctors to ask patients seeking an abortion if they are being coerced into seeking an abortion or are victims of sex trafficking, incest, sexual assault or domestic violence. Women don’t have to answer.
