The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Jake Warner regarding the Arizona Legislature’s vote Wednesday to affirm the state’s pro-life law, rejecting an attempt to repeal it:

“Life is a human right, and the Arizona Legislature has again reaffirmed that fundamental right. Life begins at conception. At just six weeks, unborn babies’ hearts begin to beat. At eight weeks, they have fingers and toes. And at 10 weeks, their unique fingerprints begin to form. Arizona’s pro-life law has protected unborn children for more than 100 years, and the people of Arizona, through their elected representatives, have repeatedly affirmed that law, as they did again today. We commend the Arizona Legislature for protecting the lives of countless, innocent, unborn children.”

Warner argued before the Arizona Supreme Court in favor of Arizona’s pro-life law in Planned Parenthood Arizona v. Mayes.
