Senate Bill 1394 was passed in Arizona on January 1, 2019 which requires women to state their reasons for receiving the abortion procedure. Elisa Medina, an advocate for Hands of Hope Tucson, states that it is necessary in providing information and data about why women are getting this done. She says that is it also proactive in the sense that if it is known why women are getting abortions, then that can be used to create a solution to prevent abortions. In addition to revealing why they want the procedure, women must also face a series of questions. This is controversial because women can’t simply get the procedure done, they have to go through more work prior. For sexual assault victims, this brings up trauma for the victim. Planned Parenthood has stated that they find this law too intrusive, and is simply not in the ‘best interest’ for the women, but rather a means to easily collect data.

Abortion has always been a controversial topic, and will continue to be a debate for many years to come. For those supporting the bill, they say it is helpful in the sense that it can help the women, and prevent them from happening in the future. For those opposed to the bill, they say it is merely political, and will only discourage women from seeking the procedure.
