Incredible story shows why PA should update its quarter-century-old abortion law

The Today Show recently highlighted the story of Francis William Azize, a baby born in January 2015 at just 23 weeks – and now thriving.

 

In Pennsylvania, babies like 23-week Francis are able to be aborted. State law permits abortion as far as six months into a pregnancy, up to 24-weeks, 6 days. At the time this PA law was passed (1989), babies born at 24-weeks or earlier were unlikely to survive.

 

Today, thanks to medical advancements, premature babies are surviving at record rates with the vast majority of babies born at 24 weeks being saved. That’s exactly why Pennsylvania must update its out-of-date abortion law.
