Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs vetoed a bill Thursday that would have ensured life-saving protections for infants born alive during a botched abortion.

Senate Bill 1600, the “Born Alive Bill,” would require hospitals and abortion facilities to provide life-saving measures to any child born alive following an abortion attempt, regardless of that child’s age or stage of development. It would also have these facilities keep abortion reporting records. Though it passed both the House and the Senate, it did not get past the desk of Hobbs, who has vowed to “veto any bill that interferes with the reproductive rights of Arizonans.”

Hobbs explained her reasoning in a letter addressed to Senate President, Warren Petersen.

“The bill is uniformly opposed by the medical community, and interferes with the relationship between a patient and doctor,” she wrote. “It’s simply not the state’s role to make such difficult medical decisions for patients.”
The Republic is lost.

What is a "botched abortion" ?

The whole I idea is so gruesome, I can't imagine.
