Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf Vows To Veto Every Pro-Life Bill, ‘Every Time’

By

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) vows he will veto every piece of pro-life legislation that is passed by state lawmakers, “every time.”

“Whenever an anti-choice bill comes to my desk, I will veto it,” Wolf said Thursday in Philadelphia, flanked by Democrat lawmakers and Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry giant that helped to reelect him.

Whenever an anti-choice bill reaches my desk, I will veto it. Every time.

As the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Saturday, Wolf plans to veto a bill, passed by the state House last week, that would ban abortions sought solely due to a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome.

Rep. Kate Klunk (R), the primary sponsor of the measure, said, nevertheless, she will continue to promote the legislation because “every child deserves and has the right to life and children with Down syndrome are no exception.”

“We have the responsibility to stand up for those children who receive that Down syndrome diagnosis in the womb. And we shouldn’t allow them to be discriminated against in the womb because they have one extra chromosome.” @RepKateKlunk #HB1500https://t.co/kWR4no8t25

Pennsylvania House lawmakers also passed a bill that would underscore the dignity of human life by requiring healthcare facilities to bury or cremate fetal remains following an abortion or miscarriage.

As a politician who has enjoyed the support of the abortion industry, Wolf has wholeheartedly adopted its narratives, including one that claims ending the life of an unborn baby because he or she is believed to have a disability is simply a “healthcare decision.”

Wolf typically uses condescending language when referring to pro-life lawmakers.

In a tweet last Tuesday, the governor referred to Republican legislators as “despicable” for working to protect the cause of life:
