Sponsored by Rep. Kathy Rapp (R-Warren) and nearly 100 other co-sponsors, HB 1948 will end late-term abortions in Pennsylvania after 20 weeks gestation. This updates the 24-week standard set in the 1989 Abortion Control Act, long before many advances in life-saving technology existed. And the bill does even more.
“In the state that’s leading the way for dramatic, life-preserving surgeries for the smallest lives, we’re going to end the inhumane practice of dismemberment abortions, which tears a living human being to pieces. We can do better than that, and Pennsylvania’s women and girls deserve better.” — Rep. Kathy Rapp
