Delaware House approves bill protecting abortion rights

BY RANDALL CHASE

DOVER, DEL. - The state House on Tuesday gave final legislative approval to a bill ensuring that abortion remains legal in Delaware if Roe v. Wade is ever overturned.

The measure, which cleared the Senate by one vote last month, passed the House 22-to-16.

A spokesman for Democratic Gov. John Carney said Carney will sign the measure, for which Planned Parenthood lobbied.

Delaware's current law, which has remained on the books despite being superseded for decades by federal law, allows abortions only if the mother's health is at risk, if there is a substantial risk the child would be born with serious disabilities, or if pregnancy results from rape or incest.
