House advances Down syndrome abortion ban, vote falls short of veto-proof majority

House advances Down syndrome abortion ban, vote falls short of veto-proof majority

HB 321, authored by Rep. Kate Klunk (R-York), would add Down syndrome to the list of reasons which a woman could not use in justifying an abortion. Proponents point to several European countries, most notably Iceland, which have nearly eradicated the syndrome after prenatal testing became more widespread.
