Remind Your State Lawmakers: No More Gosnells

Pennsylvania’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, and several pro-abortion Democrat State Representatives recently announced their intention to remove the health and safety regulations placed on abortion clinics after the uncovering of abortionist Kermit Gosnell and his ‘House of Horrors’ licensed facility in West Philadelphia.
A grand jury, with diverse opinions on abortion, released an extensive report with policy recommendations to ensure what happened with Gosnell never happens again in Pennsylvania. As a result, in 2011, Act 122 passed, which holds abortion clinics to the same standards as other outpatient surgical facilities (called “ambulatory surgical centers”).
Just over a decade later, these safety regulations are the same ones that some pro-abortion state lawmakers are trying to remove.
Say NO to a Package of Bills that Would Punish Those Who Disagree with Radical Gender Ideology
Contact your State Representative and State Senator today to oppose House Bills 1024, 1025, 1026, and 1027 – a package of bills from Rep. Dan Frankel (D-Allegheny) that would give government the tools to punish disagreement with radical gender ideology

The danger of Rep. Frankel’s package of “hate crimes” bills is their ability to silence people – using criminal and civil penalties. Rep. Frankel’s bills invite anonymous tips of so-called “hate based intimidation” that could blacklist and demonize those who speak up about human sexuality, marriage, and what it means to be male and female. This could further weaponized our cancel-culture and result in state-sanctioned discrimination.
Let’s teach respect, not create more ways to investigate and cancel persons based on their beliefs.
HB 300 was introduced by Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta (D-Philadelphia) and other Democrat members of the LGBTQ Caucus and is on a fast track. It is critical that your State Senator hear from you ASAP to oppose both of this bill.
Everyone deserves the right to be treated with dignity and respect. But HB 300 would instead make harmful changes to our state non-discrimination law by creating special protected classes for “sexual orientation” and gender identity” thereby creating a host of consequences that impact religious freedom and privacy rights. The state non-discrimination law (the Human Relations Act) was enacted in 1955 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of color or national origin. Its broad scope affects public accommodations – including schools, businesses, health care and more. It also affects employment and housing.
Female athletes would be forced to compete against biological men and would lose their right to privacy in spaces like bathrooms, locker rooms, dorms, and shelters. Religious entities such as Christian schools and ministries could lose the right to exercise their convictions about human sexuality in employment and more. Creative professionals could be forced to engage in messages that violate their conscience. Medical doctors could be forced to prescribe hormones or perform sex reassignment surgeries. Women’s shelters could be forced to admit biological men who identify as women.
Many parents are shocked to learn about disturbing, inappropriate or activist political materials and messages being taught to their children — after the fact — without their knowledge.
Many public schools make it extremely difficult to review materials. Sometimes it’s hard to even know what to ask for. There are also waiting periods, in-person review requirements, and requirements that an employee be taken away from their usual tasks in order to watch a parent review material, among other unnecessarily burdensome limits.
SB 340 would simply allow for parents to easily access what materials are being used to teach their children. SB 340 specifically requires the school districts to post on their website a link to textbook titles, course syllabus, summary of each offered instructional course, and the state academic standards for each course offered by the school.
SB 340 has passed the State Senate and now goes to the State House.
Senate Bill 7, sponsored by Senator Ryan Aument, would protect children from sexually explicit materials in schools. It would simply require schools to notify parents about materials that are sexually explicit and require their child be given a non-explicit alternative. Children will automatically be opted-out. If parents wish for their children to have access to this material, they will have the ability to opt-in.
This bill is common sense and shows respect to parents who know their children best and know that educational concepts can be taught without the need to expose children to explicit materials. SB 7 protects children and supports a flourishing educational environment.
SB 7 has passed the State Senate and is heading to the State House.
House Bill 1786 is intended to undermine states’ ability to protect the lives of unborn children and their mothers. In fact, these bills would shield abortionists from liability for the harm they cause to women.
This bill, part of a pro-abortion package sponsored by Rep. Mary Jo Daley (D-Montgomery), would stop Pennsylvania from cooperating with out-of-state civil lawsuits. HB 1786 would even stop someone from being sued or subpoenaed for malpractice when performing an abortion or providing medical care for pregnancy-related reasons. This bill would stop abortionists from facing accountability and the families of victims from receiving justice.
This is shocking considering Pennsylvania’s experience with the gruesome practices of Kermit Gosnell and his Philadelphia “House of Horrors” – or infamous Dr. Steven Brigham who was responsible for consistently harming women through botched abortions while practicing in various states.
The abortion industry knew about Kermit Gosnell and chose to do nothing. The abortion industry is about protecting abortion – their big moneymaker – not women. Their support of these bills just shows their continued support for abortion – no matter what.
The latest school choice bill is the Student Freedom Account Act, House Bill 1904, which would create a program where a portion of education funding is spent more efficiently and directly help families. This new program would create accounts that parents can use to help cover their child’s education expenses, in both public and private school settings. These expenses may include curriculum, methods and other resources. The Department of Treasury would administer and manage oversight of these accounts.
The Student Freedom Account Act would help more families set their child up for success in education. They are overwhelmingly popular both in Pennsylvania and in many other states with parents looking for better schooling options for their children. We need to give parents the tools they need to help their children succeed!
Our current Pennsylvania law allows elective abortions up to six months, which is extreme. But that’s not extreme enough for pro-abortion activists. A new bill, House Bill 1888, would create an unlimited right to elective abortions in the Pennsylvania Constitution all the way until birth. This bill would be devastating for women’s health and preborn life.
If that’s not bad enough, it would be used to overturn pro-life protection we currently have in our state laws, including:
- parental consent,
- 24-hour waiting period,
- Preventing taxpayer funding of abortion,
- clinic safety regulations passed in the wake of Kermit Gosnell, and
This legislation is extreme and would make our abortion laws on par with states like California or New York, allowing abortions up till birth without limits.
Take Action below and ask your legislation to vote NO on HB 1888.
