ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s spokesman says the governor won’t grant a request by the state’s comptroller to immediately make $3.5 million available immediately to pay for training to prepare medical professionals other than physicians to perform abortions when a new law takes effect.

Spokesman Michael Ricci said Wednesday the Republican governor firmly believes that non-licensed physicians should not be performing abortions. Comptroller Peter Franchot, a Democrat, cited a leaked draft of a U.S. Supreme Court opinion that suggested the court’s conservative majority is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, when he requested in a letter the funds be made available immediately.
