Arizona Legislative Update – Important Protections for Babies Preserved

On February 20, 2019, the Arizona House Judiciary Committee rejected a bill (HB 2696) to deny babies born after failed abortions with basic medical care.  Following testimony from the Arizona Catholic Conference and other allies the bill failed on a vote of 0-8, with two voting present.

Arizona has long had a law on the books requiring that babies born after a failed abortion receive basic care.  In 2017, this law was successfully amended to clarify the type of basic care required, as well as ensure that at least one person who is trained in neonatal resuscitation is present in the room for abortions taking place after twenty weeks’ gestational age.

These statutory provisions are common sense.  They were even the law of the land in New York until very recently when essentially the same provisions were repealed and a national controversy ensued.

The Arizona Catholic Conference strongly believes that Arizona’s current law gives newborn babies a better chance at life, and is grateful that HB 2696 has been defeated.
