Gov. Wolf Discusses Executive Actions Taken to Protect Reproductive Health Services in Pennsylvania

Governor Tom Wolf discussed the devastating effects of abortion bans for victims of domestic violence and the recently signed executive order allowing out-of-state residents to seek reproductive health care services in Pennsylvania without fear of prosecution.

"Bans on abortion increase rates of maternal mortality, cause financial hardship that hurt families and our economy, and put people in abusive relationships at more risk," Gov. Wolf said. "Research shows that women in abusive relationships are more likely to need abortion services and making it harder to access abortions can trap women in violent relationships during pregnancy - a time when abuse often escalates. It is important for Pennsylvanians and our neighbors in other states know that abortion access will remain legal and safe in the commonwealth as long as I am governor."

Speakers Include:
Maria Macaluso, Executive Director, Women's Center of Montgomery County
Governor Tom Wolf
AG Josh Shapiro
Dr. Karen Feisullin
Senator Judy Schwank
Representative Mary Jo Daley
