Governor Wolf Ready to Veto Latest Dangerous and Unconscionable Attack on Women’s Health Care

May 09, 2018

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today said he would veto House Bill 2315, the latest Republican proposal to criminalize women’s health care decisions and common health care procedures and attack a woman’s constitutional right to choose. Governor Wolf vetoed Senate Bill 3 last year, which would have criminalized abortion after 20 weeks.

“Women’s health care decisions should be between them, their doctor and their families – there is no space for Harrisburg politicians to insert themselves,” Governor Wolf said. “This new bill is even more extreme than the bill I stopped last year, and I will do everything in my power to stop this dangerous and unconscionable attack on women’s health care. I have met personally with women who’ve faced the difficult medical decision to end a pregnancy and they are loving and compassionate people who often are facing their worst nightmare. Republicans in Harrisburg show a tremendous disrespect for these women and their abilities to make their own health care decisions.”
