Bills Could Change Pa. Abortion Law

Representative Turzai gets push-back after introducing down syndrome anti-abortion legislation

"There is no evidence that this practice is even occurring, yet this is another example of Harrisburg Republicans exploiting vulnerable families and trying to undermine the doctor-patient relationship to score political points".

There are new bills on the table that could change Pennsylvania's abortion law.

A rally at the state Capitol on Monday called on lawmakers to support legislation that would ban abortions sought because a fetus has been diagnosed with Down syndrome.

On Monday, she spoke out about a pair of bills being introduced in the legislature. Pennsylvania is already home to Chloe's Law, a measure named after high school student Chloe Kondrich, who has down syndrome.

Supporters include the Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg believe every life is worth protecting. "Folks with Down syndrome deserve protection", Martin said.

Who else are you looking forward to seeing in future rounds? "We really just don't know where you fit in the music industry". He has an emotional backstory, but fails to immediately wow Perry and Richie with his rendition of James Bay's "Let It Go".

It's similar to legislation passed in North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana, and Louisiana. "Life expectancy for people with Down syndrome has increased dramatically in recent decades", Bishop Gainer said in a statement.

Gaffney is the first person with Down syndrome to swim the English Channel.

Diana Englund agrees. Her 23-year-old son, Nathan, was born with down syndrome.

"People who have fought all the odds and they're living, and growing and contributing in the communities where they live", Gaffney said.

"Our lives are worth living", she said.
