(Harrisburg, PA) April 14, 2015 – Hundreds of Pennsylvanians from all walks of life and all over the state gathered at the Capitol Rotunda Monday for the first ever Life Action Day. This unprecedented event bore witness to the truth of abortion in Pennsylvania: Despite a progressive reduction in abortions over the past few decades, one in five pregnancies still end in abortion, and Planned Parenthood is performing more abortions than ever.

The advocates for life, along with several members of the Pennsylvania legislature, were the first to see the new State of Abortion in Pennsylvania report, which brings together for the first time comprehensive statistics on the business of abortion in our state. Planned Parenthood clinics are making millions off of abortion in Pennsylvania every year, and taxpayer dollars subsidize those clinics. The legislators, presenters, and regular citizens in the rotunda agreed: It’s time to turn off the spigot of our money to Planned Parenthood.

“Yesterday showed the importance of the facts and of the voices of the people in the debate over abortion in Pennsylvania,” said Michael Geer, president of the Pennsylvania Family Council. “And the facts and the people are clear: The last thing Pennsylvania needs is an aggressive pro-abortion agenda funneling more of their hard-earned dollars to a profitable abortion business like Planned Parenthood.”
