The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear Arizona's appeal of a lower-court ruling that declared unconstitutional a state law banning abortions beginning at 20 weeks of fetal gestation, meaning the restrictive measure is struck down.
The Arizona law, signed by Republican Governor Jan Brewer in 2012, had been considered one of the toughest in the United States in imposing limits on abortion.
A May 2013 ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco invalidated the law, saying it violated "unalterably clear" legal precedents. The high court justices' decision not to review the state's appeal means the lower-court ruling remains intact.
No country in the world, is a fetus, in any stage of development; legally or medically considered a person. Only in the distorted minds of the miss guided, fable following bible thumpers of the world, does this miss conception exist. Freedom of choice today, tomorrow, and forever, learn to live with it..
