Rep. Klunk Offers Legislation Protecting Unborn Children with Down Syndrome from Abortion

Mar. 20, 2019  Download

Lawmakers and Down syndrome advocates rallied in Harrisburg on Wednesday in support of legislation that would protect unborn children from being aborted because they have been diagnosed with Down syndrome. Under current Pennsylvania law, an abortion can be performed prior to 24 weeks gestational age for any reason if a doctor deems it is necessary, except if the woman’s sole reason is to select the sex of the child. This legislation would expand the exception to prohibit aborting the child solely due to a prenatal diagnosis that the unborn baby has Down syndrome. House Bill 321 is similar to legislation approved in a previous session of the House. Rep. Kate Klunk (R-York) is a prime sponsor of the legislation to protect unborn Down syndrome babies.
