ACLU sues to challenge Arizona law prohibiting abortions for race and sex selection

Here is a link to a LifeNews story on the ACLU suit challenging the constitutionality of Arizona’s ban on abortions for race and sex selection.

This is an interesting and risky move by the ACLU.  Laws restricting abortion for race and sex selection are popular. Supporters of abortion rights have increasingly argued that abortion is about equality for women. The suit reveals, however, that the the ACLU and proponents of abortion rights are not really interested in equality. These groups are primarily interested in abortion on demand and any restriction on that unfettered choice must be resisted.
