Janet Napolitano on Abortion
Democratic AZ Governor; Designee for Secretary of Homeland Security
Support of HB 2666 by ACC:The Arizona Catholic Conference supported six pro-life bills that were vetoed by Gov. Napolitano, including measures to require a parent's notarized signature before an abortion and a codification of procedures that a minor must follow prior to obtaining a judicial bypass for an abortion.
Veto message from Gov. Napolitano:This bill poses an unnecessary and unwise burden on the families of girls who seek abortions. Forcing a family to locate and procure the services of a notary to obtain a confidential and constitutionally guaranteed medical procedure is inappropriate.
Legislative Outcome:Passed Senate 18-10-2 on Apr/11/06; Passed House 39-20-1 on Apr/12/06; Vetoed by Governor on Apr/17/06
A: I am committed to women’s reproductive rights. Current protections must not be eroded, and we must continue to fight to provide Arizona women with the support they need in making decisions about their own bodies. Thus, I am pro-choice.
