Have you viewed the video of Pennsylvania State Rep. Wendy Ullman where she states, “an early miscarriage is just some mess on a napkin?” You can view the video below and then as Tom Shaheen, Vice President for Policy of the Pennsylvania Family Council suggests contact your State Representative today for their support of HB1890!

Don’t Equate Miscarried and Aborted Babies with ‘Waste’ – Show Respect and Help Pass HB1890!
Sadly, right now there is growing pushback against some Pennsylvania elected officials who are trying to show respect to human life by passing a bill to provide for the proper disposition of a baby that is miscarried or aborted in any health care facility. Sad but true that Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby not only refuse to acknowledge the life of the unborn child, but can’t even allow families the option to properly acknowledge a baby’s death.
This is why I urge you to please take just a few minutes to contact your State Representative and ask for their support of House Bill 1890 (HB1890).
State Representative Frank Ryan (R-Lebanon) is the leading sponsor of the legislation. He and his wife suffered a late-term miscarriage of their first son, Eddie. A few hours after the baby was born, he tried to claim the remains, but they were gone.
As Rep. Ryan puts it,
It’s important that people hear the word that’s used. It’s medical hazardous ‘waste.’ And for me – that’s my child.
This legislation has drawn national attention after State Rep. Wendy Ullman (D-Bucks) callously commented in the committee vote on the bill that “an early miscarriage is just some mess on a napkin.”
Rep. Ullman has since apologized for her “poorly chosen” words but continues spreading lies about what the bill would do, claiming it requires “ritual burial or cremation” following a miscarriage. That’s just false and something we have outlined now on our website.
Thank you for your help by contacting your State Representative. Health care facilities currently treat a baby that has died from a miscarriage or abortion as medical waste. These are babies, not medical waste and we should treat them with the same dignity as other human remains.
