Maryland Democrats override governor’s veto, enact bill to let non-doctors perform abortions


ANNAPOLIS, Maryland (LifeSiteNews) – Maryland will now spend $3.5 million to train non-doctors to perform abortions, after the state legislature overrode the governor’s veto on a bill to expand abortion access. 

Maryland House Bill 937 removes previous legal limitations that restricted the performing of an abortion to a licensed doctor. The bill provides millions of taxpayer dollars for the training of nurses, mid-wives, and physician assistants in abortion procedures, and requires most private health insurance companies to cover the cost of abortions by removing co-pays.
