Ariz. House OKs ban on abortions after 20 weeks
By PAUL DAVENPORTAssociated Press
The House's vote of 37-22 on Tuesday sends the bill to Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican who has signed previous anti-abortion legislation.
Besides the 20-week ban, the bill's other requirements include mandating that the state establish a web site with images of fetuses at various stages of development for women to view.
The 20-week abortion ban would affect only a tiny percentage of abortions performed in Arizona.
The state would join six other states that have similar bans. Nebraska enacted its in 2010 and five others followed in 2011.
