A bill imposing stricter standards on abortion clinics in Pennsylvania cleared the state Senate Tuesday and now heads to the House, where its fate is uncertain.

By a vote of 38-12, the Senate passed legislation – prompted by a grand jury’s report exposing horrific conditions at a Philadelphia abortion clinic – that would increase inspection, space, staffing, and other requirements for the 20 clinics operating throughout the state.

The bill, which changed dramatically since its introduction earlier this year, needs House approval and Gov. Corbett’s signature to become law.
