CWN Editor's Note: In a 4-2 decision, the Arizona Supreme Court has ruled that the state may enforce an 1864 law protecting almost all unborn children from abortion.

Arizona law currently protects most unborn children from abortion after the 15th week of life, but permits their killing before that time, with nearly 1,100 aborted in the state each month, according to the Associated Press.
