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.
