With the placement of a new President on Jan 20th, do you think abortion laws will change soon after? Good? Bad? Ugly?
I see Arizona is looking at change:
Arizona Lawmakers Likely to Submit New Abortion Bills With Napolitano Leaving
by Steven Ertelt
December 29, 2008
Phoenix, AZ (LifeNews.com) -- Members of the Arizona legislature appear likely to renew some of the abortion debates of past sessions with the likelihood that pro-abortion Gov. Janet Napolitano won't be in office to veto their bills. Napolitano has vetoed eight pro-life bills that would have put common-sense abortion limits in place.
Those bills range from measures to inform women of the risks of abortion, prohibit non-doctors from doing abortions, and strengthened current laws requiring parental consent before a minor can have an abortion.
Rep. Andy Tobin, a Republican from Paulden, says those bills could be re-filed and his bill to ban the practice of partial-birth abortion will make a comeback.
"I believe the people of Arizona were for some of the bills she vetoed," Tobin told the Cronkite News Service. "And I do not see a problem in resubmitting the same bill without any change if it is something I think the people want."
As LifeNews.com has reported, pro-abortion incoming president Barack Obama selected Napolitano to become secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
The pro-abortion governor is expected to have no trouble receiving Senate confirmation, which will likely happen in late January.
