Amidst the wave of new protections for unborn life, Governor Wolf took to social media this week to brag about all of the pro-life legislation in Pennsylvania that he’s blocked.
Understand what he is bragging about:
– His veto of SB 3 (2017) kept late-term abortions legal between 20-24 weeks and continues the use of dismembering babies limb by limb as a legal abortion procedure.
– His veto of HB 321 (2019) kept medical professionals free from recourse in coercing women into an abortion upon a prenatal diagnosis of possible Down syndrome. Wolf approves of aborting babies just because they have Down syndrome (despite law already banning sex-selective abortions).
– It appears he’s erroneously mislabeled his 2020 veto. There was no 2020 veto of HB 2315, b/c that was a bill about fish that was never even voted on. Wolf did veto SB 857, which dangerously kept chemical abortions through telemedicine, bypassing an ultrasound which puts women at risk. A lack of an ultrasound fails to identify an ectopic pregnancy, when time to act is of the essence, as well as fails to confirm if a baby is too far along in pregnancy for a chemical abortion.
Governor Wolf brags about his support of late-term abortion; ripping babies apart limb by limb; aborting babies that have Down syndrome; and putting women with ectopic pregnancies at more risk.
That’s extreme. That’s not something to brag about. And that’s out of touch with the majority of Pennsylvanians.
