Abortion limits advance in state House in party line vote

Abortion limits advance in state House in party line vote

Rep. Kathy Rapp, R-Warren County, who sponsored the House bill that passed in the last legislative session, pointed out allowing abortions up to 20 weeks of gestation keeps Pennsylvania and most of the nation in line with only a few countries including North Korea and China, while the majority of other countries prohibit abortions after 12 weeks of a pregnancy. "His extreme pro-abortion stance is radically out of step with Pennsylvanians as he prepares to face the voters in 2018", said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List. They will not be satisfied until women have no legal access to abortion.

State House members voted 121 to 70 on Tuesday for legislation that would alter the existing 24-week limit.

"Senate Bill 3 is an assault on the doctor-patient relationship by politicians without medical or health expertise". I will veto it, because all Pennsylvania women deserve to make their own health care decisions. Were the bill to become law, Pennsylvania would become one of almost 20 states that have laws banning abortion after 20 weeks ― but experts say the so-called "dismemberment" ban is unprecedented. Moreover, they said medical advancements indicate that fetal viability - the ability of a baby to survive outside the womb - begins after 20 weeks instead of 24 weeks as previously thought.

It does not provide exceptions for rape or incest.

"As people try to frame this debate in terms of women's rights, the question that begs to be asked is, what about the rights of those pre-born women in the womb being exterminated?"

The legislation would also restrict how most second-trimester abortions are performed. "We must end the barbaric procedure of dismemberment abortions", PA GOP spokesman Greg Manz said.

Federal legislation to bar abortion after 20 weeks has made some progress.

While the abortion bill was passed by comfortable margins in both the House and Senate, neither chamber put up enough votes to override a veto.
