Please join us on June 6, 2017 for a rally at the State Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
This rally urges the Pennsylvania General Assembly to pass S.B. 300 and S.B. 3 to, respectively, defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion committers in Pennsylvania and to extend Pennsylvania's ban on abortions from 24 weeks to 20 weeks gestation and ban dismemberment abortions withthe same exceptions as Pennsylvania's Abortion Control Act.
This rally will also remind our state legislators that:
- their actions can save and have saved thousands of women and children from abortions, and
- they have the support of many citizens throughout Pennsylvania
For many years, Pennsylvania led the nation in the passage of pro-life legislation. Such legislation has resulted in the reduction of the annual number of abortions committed in Pennsylvania from 65,777 in 1980 to 31,818 in 2015.
However, Pennsylvania has not yest joined the many other states that have passed this life-saving pro-life legislation. Pennsylvania is still providing approximately $6 million annually to PP and allowing 1,588 dismemberment abortions and 380 post 20-week gestation abortions to be committed each year.
Please join our efforts to renew the necessary zeal, courage and resolve among our fellow citizens and our state legislators to protect additional mothers and children from abortion.
