This doctor used to perform abortions but now he’s voting against Arizona’s radical abortion initiative

The pro-abortion lobby is working overtime to try and force unlimited abortion-on-demand on states across the nation.

And they are pushing extreme measures that would ban any kind of restrictions on abortion up to the day of birth.

That’s why this doctor who performed abortions has come out against Arizona’s radical abortion initiative.

Arizona voters are likely to see an initiative on the November ballot that, if passed, would amend the state Constitution to allow abortion-on-demand for any reason, or no reason at all, up to the moment of birth.

The pro-abortion lobby’s lies and cover-ups

Dr. Anthony Levatino is an Arizona board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist who stopped performing abortions in 1985. 

He currently teaches endocrinology-reproductive medicine at Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine in Las Cruces, N.M.

And he is a vocal opponent of the proposed Arizona ballot initiative.

Signatures are currently being collected to get this radical pro-abortion initiative on the ballot.

But in gathering signatures, the proponents of this ballot initiative are not explaining that, as written, the initiative would legalize all elective abortions up to the moment of birth. 

According to Dr. Levatino, the pro-abortion lobby wants to hide this fact from Arizona voters.

So, they are promoting the measure solely on the basis of so-called “freedom of choice,” women’s health care, and access to abortion services.

They are doing their very best to hide what the initiative actually means legally. 

That’s because the language of the initiative states that there would be no restrictions on abortion at all up to the point of fetal viability that occurs at around 22-23 weeks of gestation, on average.

But the initiative goes even further than that.

After viability, the initiative would prevent the state from “enacting, adopting or enforcing any law that denies, restricts or interferes with an abortion that in the good faith judgment of a treating health care professional is necessary to protect the life or physical or mental health of the pregnant individual.” 

In other words, any doctor who promotes abortion can just simply say the abortion is necessary, even after the point of viability.

Health means whatever the pro-abortion lobby says it means

As Dr. Levatino points out, the term “health” in this regard includes the patient’s physical, mental, economic, and social health.

The “health” exception is so broad and purposefully undefined that any abortion at any stage of pregnancy for any reason, or no reason, can be justified on the basis of “health.”

The fact is, this initiative is not about whether a voter is pro-abortion or pro-life, it’s about promoting more abortions up to the day of birth.

And since only about 1 in 5 voters favor abortions after the point of viability, the pro-abortion lobby pushing this initiative is keeping that part quiet.

Arizona voters would do well to listen Dr. Levatino and vote down this radical pro-abortion initiative.

It truly is a matter of life and death.
