The Pennsylvania Senate on Friday approved a bill to add language to the Pennsylvania Constitution, which explicitly states that the document does not guarantee rights related to abortion or public funding of abortions. The legislation now goes to the House for vote. UPDATE: After hours of debate, the House has approved the approval. It will now await possible consideration at the next legislative meeting. If passed again by the General Assembly, the amendment will be submitted to voters for final approval. They fear that abortion could lead to further restrictions. Democrats have accused Republicans of trying to circumvent President Tom Wolf’s veto, which has doomed other attempts to restrict abortion. “They talk about wanting to respect the rights of the public, but I think in some ways they are trying to get around the process. The public is paying a lot more attention to the election of the governor, the election of the US senators, those elections. than to these voting initiatives,” Sen. Sharif Street (D -3) said. Republicans have argued that they protect the rights of the unborn. They also believe that voters should have the last word, not the governor. “This is just us, giving the people of Pennsylvania the opportunity to have their say in what our laws in Pennsylvania are,” said Senate Leader Kim Ward.
