Governor Wolf Will Veto House Bill 321
November 21, 2019
Harrisburg, PA – Press Secretary J.J. Abbott released the following statement regarding House Bill 321:
“As Governor Wolf has said repeatedly, he will veto any bill, including House Bill 321, that seeks to limit health care choices for women and politicize difficult moments for vulnerable families. There is no evidence that this bill is needed in Pennsylvania and no disability rights group supports this bill. This bill masks yet another attempt to ban abortions and put politicians between a woman and her doctor.
“What we should be doing is having a conversation about how to help women facing complex pregnancies and people with disabilities get the support they need and deserve. Pennsylvania has made bipartisan progress helping people with disabilities but this is not part of that. Rather, this is a particularly cynical way to impugn women seeking constitutionally protected health care options.”
