Harrisburg, Pa., Mar 29, 2021 / 01:11 pm (CNA).- A lawsuit from abortion providers seeking to overturn Pennsylvania’s ban on state funds for abortion found little support in court, with a 6-1 decision in the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court backing the existing law.

 

The 1982 Pennsylvania law called the Abortion Control Act bars the use of state funds for abortion except in rape, incest, or to save the life of a mother. Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court upheld the law in 1985, saying there is a legitimate state interest in “preserving potential life.” It had said the funding restrictions did not interfere with a woman’s legal right to abortion.
