Katie Hobbs Condemns Extreme Abortion Ban

PHOENIX — Today, Arizona Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs released the following statement condemning Governor Ducey’s signing of SB1164, a law that bans nearly all abortions after just 15 weeks of pregnancy with no exceptions for rape or incest:

“Today marks a giant step backward in the fight for equality for women across Arizona and across the country,” said Hobbs. “With Governor Ducey’s signature, our elected leaders have chosen to turn their backs on the overwhelming majority of Arizonans who support the constitutional right to choose. Make no mistake — stripping away women’s constitutional rights won’t stop women from seeking access to reproductive health care. But the passage of this misogynistic law clarifies the very real and dangerous consequences of electing leaders who are willing to throw away our rights and set us back a generation.”
