Pennsylvania Governor Vetoes Anti-Dismemberment-Abortion Bill

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf faces serious challenges in his run for re-election

Tom Wolf delivered a promised veto Monday to a Republican abortion bill that would have set a maximum legal window for abortions at 20 weeks, a policy the Democratic governor previously called an "attack on women".

However, abortion advocate Gov. Tom Wolf has pledged to veto the bill and is parading around with other far-left radical liberals who oppose the bill which gives innocent unborn children a chance at life.

At the national level, the U.S. House passed a similar bill earlier this year, with a vote in the Senate expected early next year.

Wolf made good on his original promise to veto the bill.

It also would have restricted circumstances in which doctors could perform a common second-trimester procedure by prohibiting them from "knowingly and purposefully causing the death of an unborn child by means of dismembering the unborn child and extracting the unborn child one piece at a time from the uterus through the use" of various instruments.

Putin thanks Trump for CIA's help in thwarting attack plot
The agency published a list of 17 major terrorist plots that Russian law enforcement has been able to head off this year. The phone call on Sunday between Trump and Putin was at least the second such call in the past week.

"I pledge to continue to fight against all attempts to strip a woman's ability to make her own decisions about her own health and her own family", he said.

Wolf, who supports abortion rights, rejected what Planned Parenthood said would have been the nation's most restrictive abortion law. The 20-week limit would have kept in place exceptions under current law for when a mother's life or well-being is at risk.

Supporters say the bill would protect the lives of unborn children and protect women from unsafe late-term procedures. "These women are victims and they should not be victimized again by this law".

There was no public hearing featuring testimony from medical professionals as the Pennsylvania bill rocketed through the legislature.

Governor Wolf ticked off a long list of problems he has with SB3 - a bill that would ban abortions in the state after 20 weeks, with no exceptions for rape, incest, maternal or fetal health problems.
