Abortion Bill Heads To Governor Ducey's Desk

A law that would change Arizona's abortion reporting law is heading to Governor Ducey.  The Arizona Senate today passed Senate Bill 13-94.  The House passed it earlier this week.  

The bill would require doctors to ask women why they're getting an abortion, and if their abortion is a result of sexual assault or because they are victims of sex trafficking or domestic violence.  

Doctors would report that information to the state, without using patient names.  Backers say they bill protects women who may be coerced into getting an abortion.  Critics say it is unnecessarily intrusive.
