Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed a statute on Tuesday that will outlaw any abortions connected with race or gender issues. Arizona is the first state in the United States of America to pass this type of anti-abortion law.
According to the new Arizona statute signed by Arizona Republican Governor Jan Brewer, if a doctor or nurse performs an abortion within the state of Arizona because the parents of the fetus preferred a boy instead of a girl, the doctor or nurse will be guilty of committing a felony. Likewise, if a doctor or nurse performs an abortion within the state of Arizona because the parents of the fetus preferred a girl instead of a boy, the doctor or nurse will be committing a felony.
The same rule applies to performing abortions because the parents of an unborn baby do not happen to like the potential baby's race. Under the new Arizona law, women who have abortions for the above reasons will also be held legally responsible, and these women will be punished for their crimes. The Arizona law has been condemned by Planned Parenthood, known for its feminist pro-choice viewpoint.
Commentary: Kudos and more kudos to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who happens to be a Republican, for having the chutzpa to be the first governor in America who signed a statute making abortions due to gender or race an illegal criminal act. This event is even more significant because Republican Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is not only a member of the Republican Party, but also a woman.
Jan Brewer is definitely the kind of woman the Bible calls a "Virtuous Woman." * (See The King James Version of the Holy Bible, Proverbs 31:10-31.) The term "virtuous woman"is known in the Jewish religion as "A Woman of Valor." The Hebrew words for A Woman of Valor are Eshet Chayil. In Judaism, Proverbs 31:10-31 is sung in Hebrew by a Jewish husband to his Jewish wife on the Sabbath every Friday night. I have personally attended Sabbath celebrations at homes of Orthodox Jews and witnessed this beautiful custom.
