Support the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act

Take Action: Tell your State Senator and State Representative to support the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. Click here to send each an email or visit pafamily.org/fairplay.

Summary: The Fairness in Women’s Sports Act ensures that women and girls have access to a fair playing field by defending Title IX and guaranteeing that girls not not forced to play against biological boys.


Support the Down Syndrome Protection Act

Take Action: Tell your State Senator and State Representative to vote yes on the Down Syndrome Protection Act. Click here to send each an email or visit pafamily.org/protect.

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.

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 It is time for Pennsylvania to update our outdated state abortion law, which still allows babies to be aborted up to six month in pregnancy (24 weeks).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. A heartbeat can be detected and viability accessed at 6 to 7 weeks into pregnancy (American Pregnancy Association).


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: Click here to send each an email.

Summary: A harmful bill that threatens your religious freedom, free speech, as well as women’s rights is being fast-tracked in Washington D.C., and if Pennsylvanians truly stand for equality – for equal rights and equal opportunities – we must act now to tell our federal leaders to oppose it.

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 H.R. 1

Take Action: Tell your US Senators – Bob Casey, Jr. (D) and Pat Toomey (R) – to oppose H.R. 1: Click here to send each an email or visit pafamily.org/HR1

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.
