On Monday, April 16, after a lengthy floor debate, the PA House of Representatives voted 139-56 to pass House Bill 2050 – the Down Syndrome Protection Act! That’s a 71% majority vote and a veto-proof majority! That means despite Governor Wolf threatening a veto, this vote sets the stage for a potential override of that threat.
139 State Representatives should be thanked for their vote in favor of protecting unborn children diagnosed with Down syndrome here in Pennsylvania. To identity your State Representative and their phone number, just enter your zip code using our “Find Your Legislator” webtool.
