I for one hope this is the beginning of the end to the legal slaughtering of our fellow human beings.

Holy mackeral can it possibly be that morals and responsiblity for one's actions could make a comeback!

oh for sure they will fight this, but it might just be the one they lose ultimately as it will go to the supreme court and more and more people are coming to the realization that abortion is murder.

They are human fetuses, not human beings. Is a tadpole a frog? Is a caterpillar a butterfly?

Your morality is flawed. Making people live under the pillar of your personal convictions IS taking away peoples freedom of choice. And if it stems from your religious beliefs, it is also unconstitutional!

Whether you agree with someone else getting an abortion or not, it doesn't affect you personally, so butt out!

Quoting the court's decision [ http://www.adfmedia.org/files/HorneIsaacsonOr... ]:

... "In choosing to put a limit on abortions past 20 weeks gestational age, the Arizona Legislature cited to the substantial and well-documented evidence that an unborn child has the capacity to feel pain during an abortion by at least twenty weeks gestational age. Defendants presented uncontradicted and credible evidence to the Court that supports this determination. Namely, the Court finds that, by 7 weeks gestational age, pain sensors develop in the face of the unborn child and, by 20 weeks, sensory receptors develop all over the child’s body and the children have a full complement of pain receptors.

That the unborn child can feel pain is further supported by the fact that when provoked by painful stimuli, such as a needle, the child reacts, as measured by increases in the child’s stress hormones, heart rate, and blood pressure.

When the child is given anesthesia, these responses decrease, which is why doctors often give both the mother and the fetus anesthesia separately in the case of fetal surgery. Id.; Doc. 12 25-1, Exhibit 2 at ¶¶ 27, 29-30. Nowhere in the Record is it suggested that a fetus is given anesthesia before being subjected to a D&E or an induction abortion.

Given the nature of D&Es and induction abortions, as described above, and the finding that the unborn child has developed pain sensors all over its body by 20 weeks gestational age, this Court concludes that the State has shown a legitimate interest in limiting abortions past 20 weeks gestational age.

Further, in promulgating H.B. 2036, Arizona expressed concerns for the health of the pregnant woman, finding that the instance of complications is highest after twenty weeks of gestation. This additional legitimate interest further supports H.B. 2036’s regulation on abortions after 20 weeks gestational age. See Doc. 25-3 at Exhibit 3.

Based on the foregoing, the Court finds that Plaintiffs cannot succeed on the merits of their claim that H.B. 2036 is unconstitutional and thus, Plaintiffs’ requests for preliminary and permanent injunctions are denied."
