Delaware moves to keep abortion legal in the state

(AP)  Lawmakers in the Delaware House are poised to begin consideration of a bill to ensure abortion remains legal in the state even if the Supreme Court ruling in Roe versus Wade is ever overturned.

The legislation, which narrowly cleared the Senate last week, revises Delaware’s current abortion statute, which remains on the books despite being superseded by federal law.

The current law allows abortions only if the mother’s health is at risk, if there is a substantial risk the child would be born with serious and permanent deformities or disabilities, or if the pregnancy results from rape or incest.
