Brewer signs abortion bill

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Governor Jan Brewer signed legislation Wednesday banning abortions based on the race or sex of the fetus or the parents.

The law makes it a felony to perform or provide financing for such a procedure.

Supporters call the measure a statement against discrimination and for life. Critics such as planned parenthood, insist there's no evidence these types of abortions are happening in Arizona.
