On Friday, July 8, both chambers of the Pennsylvania General Assembly passed the Life Amendment, a constitutional amendment that would protect current pro-life protections and prevent taxpayers from being forced to pay for abortion.

Below is the roll call vote for both the PA Senate (28-22) and PA House (107-92). We thank every State Senator and State Representative who voted in favor of protecting unborn life. If your State Senator and/or State Representative voted yes in support of the Life Amendment, please contact them to say thank you.

This constitutional amendment is a response to a lawsuit filed by the abortion industry, now before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, that threatens to force taxpayer funding of abortion and to create a right to abortion in our state constitution. Without the Life Amendment, all current and future laws protecting life in Pennsylvania are in jeopardy. With the Life Amendment, we can reverse such a court ruling and continue the work to protect all innocent human life in our state.

“Pennsylvanians agree that taxpayers should not be forced to pay for the taking of a human life through abortion. Just as the U.S. Supreme Court in the overturn of Roe and Casey ruled that the authority to craft abortion policies should be given ‘to the people and their elected representatives,’ this amendment preserves the rights of the people through their representatives to make these decisions rather than Pennsylvania’s courts.” – Michael Geer, PA Family
