20 Week Abortion Ban

SB3 of the 2017-2018 session, nearly identical to HB1948 of the 2015-2016 session, was vetoed by Governor Wolf. It would have outlawed abortions after 20 weeks, and criminalized one of the safest methods of abortion. There were no exceptions for rape or incest and the health exception was so narrow as to not include future ability to reproduce. No other state has a law this extreme on the books.
