Apr. 17, 2018  Download

The Pennsylvania House has passed legislation that would prohibit the abortion of a child due solely to a diagnosis of possible Down Syndrome. Under current law, a woman can obtain an abortion prior to 24 weeks gestational age for any reason, except if that reason is to select the sex of the child. House Bill 2050 would expand that exception to include a ban on aborting a child solely due to a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome. The law would place no restrictions on a mother having an abortion in cases of rape, incest, or personal endangerment. Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) said he is glad the House acted to protect the sanctity of these lives.
