Urgent Alert from Pennsylvania Pro Life‏ Federation on Merit Selection of Judges




From Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director
Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation



URGENT NOTE: We just got word that a number of the members of the PA House Judiciary Committee are keeping a running count of the number of calls they receive for and against so-called merit selection of judges. So, if you haven’t already done so, please call the members listed below and tell them you oppose merit selection because you don’t want your right to vote for judges to be taken away.
Thanks so much for making these critical calls!

A constitutional amendment is being introduced in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives which would take away our right to vote for judges for the PA Supreme Court, the Superior Court, and the Commonwealth Court. The amendment, which is referred to as “merit selection,” would establish a secretive appointment process for putting judges on the bench.

Please contact the pro-life members of the House Judiciary Committee, listed below, and urge them to oppose so-called merit selection of judges legislation. Tell them you don’t want your right to vote for judges taken away:

Thank you for making these important calls and sending these critical emails!
