Please see action alert below from Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation. Use the links provided to read the amendment and to contact your state legislators.
The Constitutional Amendment to keep abortion out of the PA Constitution has now been introduced in the state legislature.
Senate Bill 956 would ensure that there is no right to abortion or taxpayer funding of abortion in the PA Constitution. Read the text of the amendment here.
It is critically important that we contact our PA state representative and state senator and urge them to support this Constitutional Amendment. You can contact your state lawmakers conveniently online here:
The abortion industry has gone to court to try to establish a so-called right to abortion and taxpayer funding of abortion under the PA Constitution. The case is now before the PA Supreme Court. If the abortion industry wins the case, all of our pro-life laws could be wiped out. That would mean taxpayer funding of abortion, no ban on late-term abortion, no parental consent for abortion, no 24-hour waiting period for abortion, no inspection and regulation of abortion facilities. Tragically, it could mean abortions up to the moment of birth in Pennsylvania.
In order to stop this disastrous scenario from occurring, we need a Constitutional Amendment to keep abortion out of the PA Constitution.
Please share this alert with your pro-life friends, family members, and all appropriate lists.
