• 'I'm appalled': Governor Wolf vows to veto abortion bill

    Updated:

    HARRISBURG, Pa. - Gov.Tom Wolf says he’s appalled by the legislation passed in Alabama and Georgia that limits a woman’s right to choose. 

    Wolf posted this video on Twitter Thursday, saying that he would veto any anti-choice bill. 

    This week, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed legislation that would ban abortions based solely on the prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome. Wolf said he would veto the measure if it reaches his desk.
