Statement from Maggie Groff, Interim Executive Director, Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates
“The passage of HB 321 in the PA House of Representatives follows a scary trend of bills like this around the country. It is an unconstitutional abortion ban that shows the hypocrisy of those who support it. This bill pretends to help those with disabilities and their families while doing nothing to provide actual services and resources.
HB 321 passed by a much narrower margin than a similar bill last session. And, Governor Wolf has indicated he will veto this bill if it reaches his desk. Which begs the question: why are politicians spending taxpayer time and money on unconstitutional abortion bills that will fail when they could be working on legislation that will actually help Pennsylvanians?”
