Cathi Herrod pretends to care about women

Kat Sabine, executive director of NARAL AZ, appeared with Center for Arizona Policy President Cathi Herrod to discuss new abortion rules in Arizona resulting from a law passed in 2012.

The rules require that the most common abortion-inducing drug be administered only at the FDA-approved dosage no later than seven weeks into a pregnancy, and that both doses be taken at the clinic. The usual dose is lower, decreasing the chance of complications and the cost, and used up to nine weeks. The second dose is usually taken a day later at the woman’s home.

The rules also require that physicians who perform surgical abortions have privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic and that doctors administering abortion-inducing drugs have admission rights. It also required abortion clinics to report complications that require ambulance transport of a patient.

The proposed rules published Monday by the Health Services Department were required under a 2012 law passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature and signed by Gov. Jan Brewer. A portion of the law banning abortions after 20 weeks was struck down last year, but the other provisions remain in effect.

The new regulations will go into effect April 1.

Here is the 12 News segment, where Herrod lied her ass off and Sabine explained why the CAP law makes it harder for women to access abortion care. Herrod started right off by claiming, “This is not a pro-life or pro-choice issue. These are common sense regulations.” None of the restrictions make abortion one iota safer. In fact, they make it more likely that women will have to resort to unsafe self-abortions or dangerous quacks like Kermit Gosnell. CAP does not want abortion to be legal, period. Why would they want something they think is murder to be safe?
