Pennsylvania governor vetoes 20-week abortion ban

(Worthy News) – Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed a bill Monday that would have banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

The bill, passed by the state’s Republican-controlled legislature last week, is a “vile assault on women’s ability to make their own decisions about their own health care,” Wolf, a Democrat, said at a press conference.

Under current Pennsylvania law, abortions aren’t permitted after 24 weeks, but there are exceptions if the life of the mother is endangered. [ Source: The Hill (Read More…) ]
