Phoenix – Former Congressman and Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Salmon today issued a statement on Governor Doug Ducey signing Senate Bill 1164 into law:
“I applaud lawmakers for passing and Governor Ducey for signing this important measure to protect the most vulnerable among us. This legislation will save countless lives, guide the conscience of parents-to-be, and empower the formation of healthy, happy families across Arizona.
“This issue is the reason I first became interested in politics as a young man. And, thanks to the tireless advocacy of those who believe that life is given to us by God, the movement behind it is alive and well.
“I am deeply proud of my record fighting for the unborn, and Nancy and I were honored earlier this year when we had the privilege of holding the front-banner at the Arizona for Life March & Rally.
“I promise to continue the tradition of defending the sanctity of life as our next governor, and I hope that you will stand with me.”
In September 2021, Salmon called on Arizona state lawmakers to move forward with new pro-life legislation after the U.S. Supreme Court’s initial ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Salmon is 100 percent pro-life and received “True Blue” award from Family Research Council Action.
