Arizona's law regarding late-term abortions has been found constitutional, which means that unless there are serious medical complications resulting from the pregnancy, that there can be no abortions after 20 weeks.
Unfortunately, the law doesn't go far enough in concept and has been put on hold by a federal appeals court.
Having a firm grasp of the obvious, I know human DNA is present at conception, human cells begin to divide 24 to 36 hours after conception and a human heart beat is detected as early as four weeks.
Never miss a local story.
Obviously, the Arizona law should start at conception, because that's when all life starts, not somewhere in between.
The questions I have are only two. Since some think there are constitutional infringements with this new Arizona law, I ask about the constitutional rights of the 50 million-plus babies that have been aborted since Roe vs. Wade? And of those yet to come. And, this is the important question: When do we start to care again?
