In a strong victory for unborn babies and moms, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed three pro-life measures into law on Thursday.

“Today, Arizona spoke loud and clear: not on our watch will the body parts of aborted babies be bought and sold as commodities on the open market,” Cathi Herrod, president of the pro-life Center for Arizona Policy, said in a statement. “No longer will Planned Parenthood or any other abortion provider be able to peddle aborted remains and exploit a loophole in federal law to make an extra buck.”

The first of the three bills, Arizona Senate Bill 1474, makes Arizona one of the first in the nation to prohibit the sale, experimentation and research on aborted babies’ body parts, according to the pro-life group.
