Despite pleas, Maryland Gov. Hogan won’t release funds early to train more abortion providers statewide

May 6, 2022

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.
