Urge Your Legislator to Co-sponsor Down Syndrome Bill

Please call (this is typically best) and email your state representative and urge him or her to co-sponsor the Down Syndrome Protection Act, being introduced by Rep. Kate Klunk and Speaker Mike Turzai. The bill would ban abortion for the reason of a Down Syndrome diagnosis. Click here to view the co-sponsorship memo. If you don’t know who your state representative is, or you need contact information, click here to visit the Pennsylvania Legislature’s website.

Ask Your State Representative to Co-sponsor “Heart-Beat Bill”

Please ask your state representative to co-sponsor the “Heart-Beat Bill” (HCO1117) sponsored by PA Representative Stephanie Borowicz. It requires all physicians before proceeding with an abortion to determine whether the baby has a heartbeat. Support your local legislators as they try to ensure that what happened in the state of New York does not happen in Pennsylvania! Click here to sign the petition.
