Doug Ducey Outlaws Abortion Without Exemptions for Rape or Incest

Latest News

Yesterday, RGA Chair and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill outlawing abortion after 15 weeks if the Supreme Court allows it, without exemptions for victims of rape or incest.

Ducey has signed every piece of anti-abortion legislation that has reached his desk since taking office in 2015 and has said he hopes the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade.

The “near-total ban” on abortion after 15 weeks was just one of several harmful bills Ducey signed yesterday. The day before Trans Day of Visibility, he signed legislation attacking the rights of trans children.

Ducey also signed a voter suppression bill requiring all voters to prove their citizenship to vote in presidential elections, which could cancel the voter registrations of 200,000 voters.

“Doug Ducey and his fellow Republican governors are waging an all-out war on the right to choose,” said DGA Senior Communications Advisor Christina Amestoy. “The GOP candidates for Arizona governor would all continue this trend of restricting reproductive freedom. With the Supreme Court deliberating the future of Roe v. Wade, it’s never been more critical to elect pro-choice Democratic governors.”
