@coppercourier Cathy Sigmon, a Tempe woman, is one of many volunteering to gather signatures for a ballot initiative that would establish the fundamental right to abortion in Arizona. “Abortion was ruled legal and constitutional when I was in my 20s,” Sigmon said. “So for all of my adult life and for my children, who are now in their late 30s, the right to access abortion and the freedom to make health care decisions was a given.” Arizona for Abortion Access (AAA) is a coalition of groups that advocate for reproductive rights, and they're the driving force behind getting the Arizona Abortion Access Act on the 2024 ballot. The initiative needs roughly 384,000 signatures. Chris Love, a spokeswoman for AAA, said the campaign had gathered 250,000 as of January. Sigmon herself has gathered over 500 signatures. The campaign has until July 4 to submit the total number of signatures needed to get on the ballot. . . . #aznews #arizonanews #arizona #az #2024 #healthcare #reproductiverights #volunteer ♬ original sound – Copper Courier
