    HARRISBURG—House Bill 1984 is headed to the governor’s desk for final approval after the Pennsylvania House and Senate unanimously passed legislation that supports victims and their children. 

    HB 1984 closes a legal loophole that required having an adoptive family lined up in order to terminate the parental rights of a person who committed rape or sexual assault that resulted in the birth of a child.

    Gov. Tom Wolf is expected to sign the bill into law.
