Massachusetts Gov Charlie Baker Rejects Measure to Legalize Abortions Up to Birth

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker partially rejected a radical pro-abortion amendment in the state budget Friday, sending it back to lawmakers with proposed changes. Pro-lifers urged Baker, a pro-abortion Republican, to veto the entire amendment, which would allow unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth, weaken the state anti-infanticide law, and allow non-doctors to abort unborn babies, among other things.

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker approved the state’s $46 million budget on Friday but removed portions of the included proposal to expand abortion access in the state. “These are important changes to protect a women’s reproductive rights and autonomy in the commonwealth, and I support them,” Baker wrote about the abortion amendment that included allowing abortion after 24 weeks when the baby receives a fatal diagnosis.
