Call Your Lawmaker Now-- Stop Dismemberment Abortions in Pennsylvania

From Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director
Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation

Action Alert: Call and email your representative in the PA House of Representatives with the following urgent message:
"Please support House Bill 1948, which bans dismemberment abortions in Pennsylvania. These abortions are brutal for babies and harmful for mothers, and they need to be outlawed."
If you don't know who your state Representative is, or you need contact information, click here. Enter your address and a window will pop up with the names and contact information for your state Representative.

Please note this is state legislation rather than federal legislation so you do not need to contact your Congressman or U.S. Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey.

Dismemberment abortions typically occur in the second trimester of pregnancy. They involve tearing a baby limb by limb from the mother's womb. They are also known as a D & E abortions. As U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote, "No one would dispute that, for many, D&E is a procedure itself laden with the power to devalue human life."

Thank you once again for making these life-saving and life-changing calls and sending these critical emails!
