Arizona House Republicans file bill aiming to punish doctors who perform an abortion with death penalty

The Democratic State Rep. Athena Salman has published a series of tweets shedding light on legislation draft "HB 2650" handed in by multiple Republican State Representatives.

If the legislation would pass, all abortions would be classified as first degree murder and a "class 1 felony" which "is punishable by death or life imprisonment".
