PHOENIX, Arizona (LifeSiteNews) — Arizona’s attorney general said he will enforce the 1901 abortion ban on the books.
Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced on Twitter Wednesday night that the law is still in force. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed legislation in March that prohibited abortions at 15-weeks, but this law completely bans abortion.
The law states:
A person who provides, supplies or administers to a pregnant woman, or procures such woman to take any medicine, drugs or substance, or uses or employs any instrument or other means whatever, with intent thereby to procure the miscarriage of such woman, unless it is necessary to save her life, shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for not less than two years nor more than five years.
“Our office has concluded the Arizona Legislature has made its intentions clear regarding abortion laws. ARS 13-3603 is back in effect and will not be repealed in 90 days by [the 15-week abortion ban bill],” Brnovich announced. “We will soon be asking the court to vacate the injunction, which was put in place following Roe v. Wade in light of the Dobbs decision earlier this month.”
Planned Parenthood had begun halting abortions in the state after the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

Dave Rubin (left) hosts one of the most popular conservative chat-shows on YouTube, but we now know his views are as extreme as many on the left.
Not only are Rubin and his homosexual partner using surrogate mothers to bear two babies, thus deliberately depriving the children of their true mothers' care once born, but he also admitted those babies would have been aborted if found to have severe disabilities.
SIGN the petition telling Dave Rubin that true conservatives protect life and uphold the right of children to be raised by their mothers.
Mr. Rubin recently said he also supports abortion up until 12 weeks, compounding the regrettable pro-eugenics stance he has taken towards unborn babies with severe disabilities.
There are few things more tragic in our world today than the disposable attitude of many people towards innocent human life, but that is exactly what Rubin thinks is acceptable.
This must be called out - it's simply abhorrent to treat the disabled, the unwanted, and the vulnerable with such callous disregard.
Tell Dave Rubin that his pro-eugenics views have no place in a humane society.
Can you imagine finding out your parents would have aborted you if you had a severe disability?
Well, that's unfortunately what will happen to the children Rubin raises if they someday read his latest book, "Don't Burn This Country".
There he shares that he and his family's decision would have been to "terminate the pregnancy" if a severe disability was found in one of the babies now being borne by their surrogate mothers.
Rubin must understand how cruel this entire situation is, not only for the mothers and their children who will be taken away, but also for disabled people to know they are essentially thought of as "lives unworthy of life."
Real conservatives must speak up now and tell Rubin that his pro-abortion views are abhorrent.
Mr. Rubin's public split with the left is to be welcomed, but "conservative" leaders like him will do much more harm than good if they continue using their platform to undermine the family and the right of children to be born.
If we let these cornerstones of society be attacked from within, what hope have we of building a culture we can be proud to hand on?
Make a stand today for unborn children and their mothers - tell Dave Rubin that he's wrong.
True conservatives cannot afford to take the easy shortcut of ignoring Rubin's cruel position, lest we continue to be shunted further left, becoming radical liberals in everything but name.
So, please SIGN and SHARE this petition today,

“We are working diligently with our team of attorneys to understand Arizona’s tangled web of conflicting laws so we can ensure that our patients know what their rights are and how to access legal abortion,” Brittany Fonteno, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Arizona, said on Friday according to Arizona PBS.
Abortion activists in Arizona on Friday attempted to breach the Capitol and forced the Arizona Senate to go into recess due to the threats.

The protests “forc[ed] lawmakers to huddle briefly in a basement inside the building as they rushed to complete their 2022 session,” ABC News reported.
“SWAT team members with the Department of Public Safety fired tear gas from second floor of the old Capitol building to disperse protesters in the mall between the current House and Senate buildings,” ABC reported. “KPHO-TV reported the officers opened fire when several protesters started banging on glass doors of the Senate building.”
Arizona joins other states that have begun to enforce pre-Roe abortion laws that are still on the books or enforce trigger laws that banned abortion when Roe was reversed.
Those states include Texas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Arkansas and Kentucky. Missouri became the first state since the reversal of Roe to completely ban abortions.
