Down Syndrome Abortion Ban
2019 - HB 321 - Vetoed by Governor Wolf
20 Week Abortion Ban
2017-2018 - SB 3 - Vetoed by Governor Wolf
2015-2016 - HB 1948
These bills would have outlawed abortions after 20 weeks and criminalized one of the safest methods of abortion. There were no exceptions for rape or incest. The health exception was so narrow that even a person at risk of losing the ability to safely become pregnant again would not be able to access an abortion. No other state has a law this extreme on the books.
Defunding Planned Parenthood
2017-2018 - SB 300
2015-2016 - HB 1623
2013-2014 - HB 1870
These bills tiered family planning funding offered through the Department of Health (DOH), forbidding any entity that provides abortions outside of rape, incest, and to protect the life of the pregnant person, from receiving any state funds from DOH.
