Effects of Pennsylvania Abortion Bills

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: No debate on Pennsylvania abortion bills' effects, by Brad Bumsted:

HARRISBURG — Anti-abortion and abortion rights advocates don't often agree. But they do on what will be the effects of bills approved by the state House and Senate to place tighter restrictions on abortion clinics in the aftermath of what prosecutors called a "house of horrors" at a Philadelphia clinic.

There are differences to be sure in H.B. 574, approved by the House in May, and S.B. 732, which won Senate approval on Tuesday. As for the standards imposed on clinics, they are fundamentally the same even though the House bill at first blush seems to go a bit further, both sides say.

Anti-abortion lobbyists like both bills. Abortion rights advocates oppose them. . . .
