Arizona Targets Abortion Clinics

    WASHINGTON - SEPTEMBER 5:  Abigail Brown, 19, Phoenix, Arizona, puts a "LIFE" sticker over her mouth while praying in front of the Supreme Court building September 5, 2005 in Washington, DC. Brown is a member of an anti-abortion Christian group called "The Cause USA" who work at the Justice House of Prayer in Washington and pray in front of the Supreme Court every day, according to spokesperson Missy Huff of Decatur, Alabama. US President George W. Bush announced that he has nominated Judge John G. Roberts to replace Supreme Court Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, who died of cancer September. "We totally think he's from the Lord," Huff said about Roberts. "We think he's an answer to our prayers."  (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

The push comes as Brewer calls on her legislature to address state's budget issues and its troubled child welfare agency.
