Governor Wolf Statement on House Bill 1948

July 11, 2016

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today reiterated his position firmly against House Bill 1948, which is expected to begin moving in the Senate today.

“This legislation would be a step backwards for women and for Pennsylvania,” Governor Wolf said. “I urge the Senate to reject this bill. If this legislation reaches my desk, I will veto it. This is a bad bill for Pennsylvania and we cannot afford to allow it to go forward.”

In April, Governor Wolf stood with three mothers who told powerful and heartbreaking stories of how H.B. 1948 would have affected their families and the decisions they made with their doctors. Watch the video:
