Despite pleas from some Maryland Democratic lawmakers and officials, Gov. Larry Hogan does not plan an early release of $3.5 million in funds set aside for training additional clinicians to perform abortions in Maryland before doing so is required next year. The money came attached to a state law passed this year that allows medical providers other than physicians to perform the procedure, including nurse practitioners, physician assistants and midwives. Hogan, a Republican, vetoed the bill, but his veto was overturned by the Democratic legislature.
