by | Jun 21, 2016 | Abortion | 7 comments

Today, the PA State House of Representatives voted 132-65 in favor of HB1948. Championed by Representatives Kathy Rapp (R-Warren), Bryan Barbin (D-Cambria/Somerset) and Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) along with the leadership of House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) and Majority Leader Dave Reed (R-Indiana), this bill would limit abortion to five-month of pregnancy (current law is up to 6 months) and end the barbaric procedure of dismemberment abortion.

Thank you to the thousands across Pennsylvania who used our Citizen Action Center to encourage their State Representative to support HB1948 and update our quarter-century-old abortion law.

If your State Representative voted yes, we encourage you to call and express your thanks. Here’s the roll call:
