A Virginia-based pro-life group is urging Hawaii’s governor to veto a bill that would allow late-term abortions in the aloha state.
HB 1242 would allow late term abortions in a clinic or physician’s office. It would also remove residency requirements, paving the way for abortion tourism to flourish on the island-state.
“A small group of powerful elites are pushing the most radical abortion legislation in world history on the beautiful people of Hawaii,” said Fr. Thomas Euteneuer, president of Human Life International, in a statement.
“Hawaiian culture is world renowned for its respect for the dignity of human life and celebration of family, Ohana in Hawaiian,” he said.
“If Hawaii’s Republican Governor fails to veto this radical abortion bill … Hawaii will go from the Aloha State to the Abortion State in nine short days,” he warned.
