New Jersey Governor Whitman Vetoes D&X Ban

New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman (R) has vetoed a state bill that would ban the D&X late-term abortion procedure. Whitman refused to sign the bill because it did not make an exception for cases in which the woman's health was endangered. The law exempts procedures only to save the woman's life, apparently her health does not really mean much to the state legislature. The state legislature will attempt to override the veto.
