Arizona Senate Approves Fetus-Pain Abortion Measure

The Arizona Senate approved a bill 17-13 Tuesday that requires doctors to tell women seeking abortions that their fetuses could experience pain even if the women receive pain medication. The bill had earlier passed  the House and now goes to Governor Janet Napolitano, who since taking office in 2003 has vetoed several measures supported by abortion opponents. Supporters claimed the bill would help ensure that women could make informed decisions about their health. Critics claimed the bill is intended to erode abortion rights.
