Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation to U.S. Supreme Court: Overturn Roe v. Wade

Please see press release from the Pennsylvania Pro-life Federation below regarding their amicus brief in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

roe v wade 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE    July 30, 2021           

CONTACT: Maria V. Gallagher, PPLF,  gallagher@paprolife.org 

 HARRISBURG, Pa. – The Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation has sent a direct message to the U.S. Supreme Court: Overturn Roe v. Wade.

The Federation has filed an amicus brief in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The case involves Mississippi’s protective law banning abortion at 15 weeks.

In this well-reasoned brief, the Federation “seeks an overturn of Roe v. Wade, so that States may once again provide protection for vulnerable unborn human life.”

 The brief further states, “Roe was a radical decision that overrode the legislative judgments of all 50 states. It was based on a flawed understanding of the humanity of the unborn child and views of obstetrical practice that are outdated because they fail to treat unborn children as second patients in pregnancy.”

 Roe v. Wade is the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling which legalized abortion throughout the country. It is estimated that more than 62 million Americans have died from legal abortion since the decision went into effect. Countless numbers of women have also been forced to grieve children lost to abortion.  

        You can read the Federation’s ground-breaking brief here. 

The Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation is a grassroots right-to-life organization with members statewide.  As the state affiliate of National Right to Life, PPLF is committed to promoting the dignity and value of human life from conception to natural death and to restoring legal protection for preborn children.

 

Planned Parenthood’s string of abysmal failures in Pennsylvania continues

Please see report from Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation regarding the ‘lack of accountability by abortion facilities in the Commonwealth’ of Pennsylvania. 

PP

A public report from a recent inspection of a Planned Parenthood center in Pennsylvania reveals that the facility performed an abortion on a teenage girl without obtaining parental consent 24 hours prior to the abortion. This represents a clear violation of the Commonwealth’s time-tested Abortion Control Act, which has been in place for decades.

According to the March 11th Department of Health report, a review of records “revealed no documented evidence that the parent of the pediatric patient was provided or signed an informed consent prior to the abortion” occurring at the Planned Parenthood Keystone in Warminster. The abortion took place on December 30, 2020.

Youngest GOP Woman Elected to Congress in 2020 says Mom Rejected Abortion Against the Advice of her Own Family

By Maria Gallagher, Legislative/PAC Director, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation

The youngest Republican woman to be elected to Congress in 2020 credits her mother with saving her life.

Pro-life Florida Congresswoman-elect Kat Cammack (R-03), 32, told Fox News that doctors recommended abortion when her mother Ginny was pregnant with her. Even her own grandmother pushed for abortion.

Ginny had experienced a stroke when she was pregnant with Kat’s sister at age 27, and physicians feared she would not survive a subsequent pregnancy. However, six years later, she was able to experience a healthy pregnancy and give birth to a healthy daughter in Kat.

Pennsylvania Action Alert! Hold State Health Department & Gov Wolf Accountable for Lack of Abortion Center Inspections

Please read the information below from the Pennsylvania Pro-life Federation and contact your State Legislators today!

Take Action
No abortion center inspection reports have been posted on the Pennsylvania Health Department website since early February. Is the Health Department failing to inspect abortion facilities because of the COVID-19 pandemic? Or is the Department lagging woefully behind in posting to its website inspections that have already been completed?
Please call and email your state Representative and state Senator with this urgent message: Please hold the state Health Department and Governor Tom Wolf accountable. Please tell them abortion facilities need to be inspected, and the results need to be posted on the Health Department website.
For background information, please see the National Right to Life article on the situation here 
If you do not know who your state representative and state senator are, or you need contact information, please use this link. 
Thank you for making these important calls and sending these vital emails.

The Room that Shouldn’t Exist

The following is By Bonnie Finnerty, Education Director for the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation.

Baby in womb P.O.C. Three little letters.  Do they mean anything to you?

In the eyes of some, that’s all we really are.

Products of Conception.

Did you know that there is a special room at every abortion center called the POC lab?  It’s where abortion workers literally piece back together an aborted child, reassembling his torso, legs, arms, and head to make sure that the entire baby was suctioned from the mother’s uterus.   If every part of the baby is not accounted for, a remaining piece in the mother may cause infection and potentially death.

Former abortion worker turned pro-life activist Abby Johnson says that workers at her clinic would joke that the room was called the Pieces Of Children lab.

How can anyone joke about reassembling a tiny human like a jigsaw puzzle? Or actually do it?

Can they not see the clearly human features?  Can they not see the life that once was? The life that existed just moments earlier but was violently ended by the flip of a switch?

Not if you’ve been schooled in dehumanization.
