Pro-abortion governor may not get his way

Pro-lifer with hatPennsylvania lawmakers are working to advance a pro-life bill to the governor's desk for a likely veto – a move the General Assembly might very well attempt to override.

The Pennsylvania Senate has already approved the measure and the House Health Committee has passed it out to the full House for consideration. Maria Gallagher of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation explains what the legislation would do should it become law.

"Senate Bill 3 is a very important piece of legislation that would mean that preborn babies would no longer have to undergo the gruesome practice of dismemberment abortion," she says. "That's an abortion when a baby is ripped limb by limb from the mother's womb."

Another provision would ban abortions at 20 weeks' gestation, a point at which the baby can feel excruciating pain.

Gallagher believes there are enough votes in the House to send the measure to rabid pro-abortion Governor Tom Wolf, who is expected to veto it.

"His statements so far opposing the bill have been out of the mainstream – and they are not reflective of the vast majority of Pennsylvanians who want to see this terrible procedure banned," argues the pro-life. "We believe that there is a possibility that if the governor vetoes this measure that the state legislature will try to override that veto."

A House vote has not yet been scheduled, but it appears supporters want to act quickly.
