Delaware Abortion Bill Readied For House Vote

347

A bill ensuring abortion remains legal in Delaware regardless if the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade is overturned, has been approved by committee for a full vote in the state House.

Wednesday, May 17, the Health and Human Development Committee cleared the bill with 8 votes and is now available for a vote in the House. The bill has already passed in the Senate.

This legislation changes Delaware’s existing abortion law, which allows abortions only if the mother’s health is at risk, if there is a substantial risk the child would be born with serious and permanent deformities or disabilities, or if pregnancy results from rape or incest.
