Pro-lifers in Pennsylvania say their governor is partly to blame for the state's increase in abortions and abortion-related complications.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health has released the report on abortion numbers for 2019, revealing that abortions in The Keystone State actually increased by slightly more than 2%.
"That means 654 more unborn children died in 2019 compared with 2018," figures Maria Gallagher of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation. "When we see an increase in abortion, we have to ask why. In Pennsylvania it's very disturbing that we have a governor who has rejected pro-life legislation time and time again."
Because Gov. Tom Wolf (D) has rejected all the bills passed by the state legislature, the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation attributes the loss of life to abortion to his actions.
In addition to the increase in abortion, women reportedly experienced an increase in complications from abortions by 59%.
"We are very eager to see what the figures will be in 2020, knowing that COVID is a factor and also that the governor unexplainably kept abortion facilities open when other business were forced to close," Gallagher tells One News Now.
She adds that neither Gov. Wolf nor the abortion industry is interested in seeing these numbers go down.
