Pennsylvania TRAP Law Heads to Governor For Approval

With the new law approved by both branches of the Pennsylvania legislature, all it takes now is a signature from the governor and the new regulations on clinics that perform abortions in the state will begin to go into effect.


The Pa. House of Representatives passed the bill Tuesday. Representative Matt Baker of Wellsboro says he introduced the bill to provide better protection for women.

Baker said, “What this does is require unannounced inspections and a higher level of standards of care for patient safety to help protect women and children that are being treated in abortion clinics.”

The women and “children” that are being treated in abortion clinics?  I certainly hope he is referring to young teens who are trying to terminate unwanted pregnancies with that quote.
