– Speaker of the House Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) and House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) issued the following statement on the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:
“Today’s Supreme Court ruling reestablishes the authority of states to regulate abortion. The ruling once again makes clear it is the authority of individual states to establish laws that are in the best interest of their residents.
“It is important to point out Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act remains in effect, and places firm restrictions on abortions in our Commonwealth including a ban on all late-term abortion procedures.
“This ruling presents a necessary opportunity to examine our existing abortion law, and discussions around possible changes are already underway.”
