Please sign the Arizona Right to Reproductive Freedom initiative

This is from a post I saw on Reddit:

We have an opportunity to get an initiative regarding reproductive freedom on the ballot this November, but we need 350,000 signatures by July 7th. Links below to the proposed initiative and the site to find a location to sign the petition and to sign up to collect signatures.

Pardon any typos and will probably edit multiple times to adjust formatting

A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

AMENDING ARTICLE II OF THE CONSTITUTION BY ADDING SECTION 12.1; RELATING TO REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM.

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Arizona: Section 1. Article I, Constitution of Arizona is amended by adding Section 12.1, as follows:

SECTION 12.1. RIGHT TO REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM

B. NEITHER THE STATE NOR ANY POLITICAL SUBDIVISION SHALL RESTRICT, PENALIZE, FRUSTRATE OR OTHERWISE INTERFERE WITH THE EXERCISE OF THE RIGHT TO REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM, INCLUDING: ANY INDIVIDUAL'S ACCESS TO CONTRACEPTION; PRE-VIABILITY MEDICAL AND SURGICAL TERMINATION OF PREGNANCY; OR MEDICAL AND SURGICAL TERMINATION OF PREGNANCY WHEN NECESSARY TO PRESERVE THE INDIVIDUAL'S HEALTH OR LIFE.

2. Thanks!

It'll be tight to get 350k signatures in the next 2 weeks, but I'm hoping we can do it.
