Guam - The governor's legal counsel is still reviewing Bill 52 that was passed on Wednesday during an emotional special session. The governor says he is thankful to the 11 senators who voted for the bill and says once the review is done he anticipates signing the measure into law that requires informed consent of a woman whom the abortion is to be performed.
"Most importantly with this bill being enacted into law if just one life can be saved by this passage by giving informed consent to a mother then it has accomplished it's task," he said.
The measure was passed on Wednesday with a vote of 11-4. Senators Aline Yamashita, Tom Ada, Ben Pangelinan and Speaker Judi Won Pat voted against the bill's passage.
