Summary

The abortion industry has brought a court case now before the PA Supreme Court – Allegheny Reproductive Health Center v. Pennsylvania Department of Human Services – that threatens to force taxpayer funding of abortion in our state, and asks the justices to invent a “right to abortion” in the Pennsylvania Constitution. Such a ruling will be used to invalidate every piece of legislation that you, the legislature, pass to protect the life and health of women and unborn children.

Support the Unborn Child Dignity Act

Take Action

Tell your State Senator to vote yes on the Unborn Child Dignity Act.
Click here to email or visit pafamily.org/showrespect.

Summary

House Bill 118 would require healthcare facilities to give parents the option of burial or cremation after the death of their unborn child. Hospital policies vary but too often these babies are treated as “medical hazardous waste” and not given the dignity they deserve. This must change.

Status: House Bill 118 is before the full PA Senate, after passing the Senate Health Committee on December 14, 2021 (Roll Call: 6-4). On June 9, 2021, House Bill 118  passed the PA House of Representative (Roll Call: 118-83).

Support the Down Syndrome Protection Act

Take Action

Tell your State Senator and State Representative to support the Down Syndrome Protection Act.

Click here to send each an email or visit pafamily.org/protect.

Status: On June 8, 2021, House Bill 1500 passed with bipartisan support in the PA House of Representatives (120-83). It now awaits action in the PA Senate Health and Human Services Committee.

Summary

Under current Pennsylvania law, eugenics is not only legal, but something that is actively being pushed. It is legal for a baby to be aborted simply because they have a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis. A diagnosis of Down syndrome should never be a reason to terminate a child. All life is priceless and worth saving and Down syndrome is no exception. Pennsylvania’s Down Syndrome Protection Act would add protection for any unborn child from being aborted solely due to a diagnosis of possible Down syndrome.

Support the Heartbeat Bill

Take Action

Tell you State Senator and State Representative to support the pro-life Heartbeat Bill.
Click here to send each an email or visit pafamily.org/heartbeat.

Status: On May 25, 2021, the PA House Health Committee passed the Heartbeat Bill, House Bill 904 (Roll Call: 15-10). It now awaits action by the full PA House of Representatives.

Summary

When you hear and see the heartbeat of an unborn child, you hear life. It is time for Pennsylvania to update our outdated state abortion law, which still allows babies to be aborted up to six month in pregnancy (24 weeks). That’s far past the time you hear life. The Heartbeat Bill, would protect unborn babies after a heartbeat is detected. This bill says that if a heartbeat is detected, a baby is protected.

Sign the Open Letter to Pitt: Stop Experimenting on Aborted Babies

Take Action

Watch/Share the video by Center for Medical Progress, sign the open letter to Pitt and contact PA Auditor General DeFoor calling for a full investigation. Go to PittExposed.com to take action.

Summary:

 Harvesting organs and performing experiments on innocent human beings whose death was elective — aborted for convenience and without medical necessity — is unethical. Yet that is exactly what is happening at Pitt and elsewhere in Pennsylvania. At Pitt, aborted babies are being scalped and the scalps are then grafted onto rodents.  If that’s not alarming enough, Pitt has set racial quotas on their tissue orders. In their application, Pitt indicates their desire for half of the babies being experimented on to be minorities. And finally, there is some evidence that labor is being induced and babies are delivered in manners where the baby can still be alive when organ harvesting occurs.

Oppose the so-called Equality Act

Take Action

Tell your US Senators – Bob Casey, Jr. (D) and Pat Toomey (R) – to oppose the so-called Equality Act.

Summary

The so-called Equality Act would remove significant rights and opportunities from many in our communities. We should all agree that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. But using government overreach to force good people to deny biological realities and to compromise their religious convictions is not the answer.

Oppose Nationalization of Elections and Ballot Harvesting

Take Action

Tell your US Senators – Bob Casey, Jr. (D) and Pat Toomey (R) –
to oppose H.R. 1.

Summary:

The so-called “For the People Act” (H.R.1) would nationalize our election laws and increase the dangers of election fraud by mandating the expansion of mail-in voting, allowing ballot harvesting, and prohibiting states from requiring Voter ID. It would also force pro-life, pro-family organizations to publicly disclose their supporters’ personal information — your personal information — opening up supporters to the dangers of today’s cancel culture.

Stop Harmful Marijuana Legalization in Pennsylvania

Take Action

Contact your State Senator and State Representative to oppose any effort in PA to legalize marijuana for recreational use. Click here to send each an email or visit pafamily.org/WeedHarms

Summary

Some state legislators have introduced harmful legislation that would fully legalize and commercialize the sale of marijuana for recreational use, which would result in negative consequences to public health and safety. The marijuana lobby’s revenue projections from commercialization are not only grossly inflated but do not calculate the host of harms that would come from dangerously high potent marijuana products sold in more pot shops than Starbucks and McDonalds combined.
