Arizona Democrats yelled "BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS!" to GOP lawmakers who refused to overturn the state's abortion ban 🤡

Talk about woke projection!

Despite efforts from some very big names and powerful people to demand moderation on abortion, the Republicans in the Arizona Legislature pushed back efforts to repeal an older law that was recently upheld as an abortion ban.

From the AP:

The Arizona Legislature devolved into shouts of "Shame! Shame!" on Wednesday as Republican lawmakers quickly shut down discussion on a proposed repeal of the state's newly revived 1864 law that criminalizes abortion throughout pregnancy unless a woman's life is at risk.

"Shame! Shame!" and "Blood on your hands!" because they upheld a bill that [checks notes] protects babies from murder?

Arizona just became the most pro-life state in history and they now have "blood on their hands"?

House Democrats and at least one Republican tried to open discussion on a repeal of the 1864 abortion ban, which holds no exceptions for rape or incest. GOP leaders, who command the majority, cut it off twice and quickly adjourned for the week. Outraged Democrats erupted in finger-waving chants of "Shame! Shame!"

Republican state Rep. Teresa Martinez, of Casa Grande, said there was no reason to rush the debate. She accused Democrats of "screaming at us and engaging in extremist and insurrectionist behavior on the House floor." The GOP-led Senate briefly convened without debate on abortion.

Can I just say that Rep. Martinez is absolutely BASED for calling Democrats' shouting and disruptive behavior "insurrectionist"?

That is awesome. What's good for the goose, right?

"We are navigating an extremely complex, emotional and important area of law and policy," said Martinez, the GOP House whip. "In my opinion, removing healthy babies from healthy mothers is not health care nor reproductive care. Pregnancy is not an illness. It should be celebrated. It is an abortion that terminates life."

While some Republican leaders in Arizona, and on the national level, are pushing for softer pro-life policies, I'm glad Arizona is standing up for life like this.

I am pleasantly surprised.
