Saccone introduces bill to ban abortion after heartbeat detected, shaving 18 weeks off current law

Saccone introduces bill to ban abortion after heartbeat detected, shaving 18 weeks off current law

Six months after floating a co-sponsor memo seeking support for a so-called heartbeat bill — which bans abortion if a doctor can detect a heartbeat from a fetus — Rep. Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny) has officially introduced the legislation.

“I want to save baby lives,” Saccone said Wednesday. “I’m unashamedly pro-life. When the heartbeat is detected, there’s a baby in there.”

Wolf vetoes workers' compensation bill

Wolf vetoes workers' compensation bill

Governor Tom Wolf vetoed controversial SB 936 Friday afternoon after a week of partisan battles over how the bill would actually affect injured workers.

In a statement, Wolf said the bill would ration care and hurt health outcomes for laborers across the state.

"Senate Bill 936 threatens health care for millions of workers who could be injured on the job, including police, corrections officers, and firefighters, who put their lives on the line every day, and whose injuries can be unique, debilitating and severe," Wolf said. "It is wrong to sacrifice health care for our first responders to protect the bottom-line for insurance companies and corporations."
