Governor Wolf and Rep. Krueger-Braneky Host Roundtable to Discuss Women’s Healthcare and SB 3

Swarthmore College, Bond Memorial Hall, N Chester Road, Swarthmore, PA

Governor Wolf will be joined by Representative Krueger-Braneky to host a roundtable discussion on Senate Bill 3. The roundtable will be attended by medical professionals, and women’s healthcare advocates.

Senate Bill 3 proposes the most extreme restrictions on abortion in the country. It would ban abortions after twenty weeks except in the rarest of circumstances, and would also ban one of the safest methods of second trimester abortions, putting women at risk and severely limiting their ability to make decisions about their healthcare. Governor Wolf has previously announced that he will veto this bill if it reaches his desk.
