(LifeNews) Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, on Friday night, signed a pro-life bill that would prevent taxpayer funding of the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which does more than one-fourth of all abortions in the United States.
The Whole Woman’s Health Funding Priority Act of Arizona (HB 2800) will defund abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood of state family planning money. The bill is based on model legislation developed by the SBA List and the Alliance Defense Fund, and prioritizes family planning funds away from abortion-centered businesses like Planned Parenthood to entities that provide women with comprehensive health care.
The measure prohibits the state or any local government from using public money to contract with an organization that includes abortions.
