from Maria V. Gallagher,Legislative Director
Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation
The Pennsylvania Senate today voted on the confirmation of Pedro Cortes as Secretary of State. As you may recall, during Cortes’ previous stint as Secretary of State during the Rendell Administration, his department did nothing to stop abortionist Kermit Gosnell and his “house of horrors.”
The Senate voted to confirm Cortes by a vote of 31 to 18.
I believe our opposition to Cortes helped to put the Wolf Administration on notice that Pennsylvanians do not want to return to the days of Gosnell and lax enforcement of abortion laws. Thank you to those of you who called your state Senator urging a “no” vote on Cortes.
