Pennsylvania governor bans elective surgery, allows abortion

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf will permit abortions to take place in that state, even after he banned all other forms of elective surgery.

Wolf issued the ban on surgeries earlier this month as the state began seeing more coronavirus cases. Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania, however, has continued to offer abortions, although it ceased all other forms of elective procedures.

🔦 Pennsylvania saw more than 31,000 abortions in 2017. The state has so far seen 63 deaths from coronavirus.
