Arizona Governor Signs Bill Prohibiting Abortion Based on Gender or Race

The law bars anyone from performing an abortion if they know the abortion is being sought because of sex or race of the child or the race of a parent of that child.

It specifically requires abortionists to sign an affidavit saying they have no knowledge that the abortion is being performed because of the baby’s sex or race. And it allows the father of the unborn child — or in some cases, the maternal grandparents of the unborn child — to file civil suits against doctors who violate the law.

There are no penalties for the woman seeking the abortion.
