State Senators have advanced a proposal that would require a woman be asked specific questions before having an abortion. The bill now moves on to the House.
If Senate Bill 1394 becomes law, doctors would have to run down a checklist of possible reasons a woman wants to terminate her pregnancy.
According to the "Arizona Capitol Times," existing law contains an open-ended question, but the bill's sponsor Nancy Barto said it doesn't provide sufficient information for annual reports by the Arizona Department of health services.
Democrat opposed to the legislation say it's only designed to shame women.
