There must be something in the water out there in Arizona. A recent bill crafted by Arizona Republicans would not only make it illegal to get abortions through the federal marketplace (a solution in search of a problem), but would also require doctors to tell women that certain abortion medications are “reversible.”
This isn’t just a fundamental failure of biology. These people are fundamental failures of life.
I would add that there’s no evidence, but since when has evidence ever changed the opinions of a Republican?
During debate on the Senate floor, the most heated topic was the bill’s requirement that patients be told the effects of abortion pills may be undone by using high doses of a hormone.
“This is junk science, this is quack medicine,” said Senate Minority Leader Katie Hobbs, a Phoenix Democrat. “There is absolutely no evidence anywhere… that supports this as a valid medical procedure.” Backers say there is ample evidence that the reversal is possible if acted upon quickly, though they provided no peer-reviewed studies to support that claim.
In true Republican fashion, supporters claim there’s evidence if acted upon quickly, despite a lack of peer-reviewed studies. Cathi Herrod, the president of the Center for Arizona Policy, a conservative group pushing for the measure, called it a “great day for women in Arizona who are considering getting an abortion to get all the facts they need and a great day for Arizona taxpayers.”
They want all the babies, but they don’t want to take care of them. They claim adoption is a thing, but then their very own politicians rehome little girls with rapists after claiming they’re possessed by demons. They “defend the sanctity of life” by blocking access to healthcare and cutting programs for children, hamstring our public school system, and make it harder to get contraceptives.
They talk about “the pre-born” but there’s nothing about the rest of us, who might as well be “pre-dead” to them.
