HB 587 UpdateHB 587 is now with the Senate judiciary committee, of which Bucks/Montgomery Counties' Senator Stewart Greenleaf is chair. Please urge Greenleaf (firstname.lastname@example.org) to move forward with this legislation, so that it can ultimately receive a favorable vote by the full senate and a signature by the governor.
Ultrasound Legislation"There are about a dozen states that require that ultrasound images be offered to women seeking abortions, before the procedure is performed. Here in Pennsylvania, we do not currently have such a requirement. Here, an ultrasound bill was introduced last session by Rep. Kathy Rapp, R-Warren, and other key members of the House pro-life caucus and quickly gained more than 100 co-sponsors. But the abortion lobby and its allies on the political left – many even from out-of-state – went on the attack and intimidated otherwise well-meaning legislators from moving ahead, for now" (Pennsylvania: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, Citizen Link, 12/19/13).
Though they identify themselves as "pro life", our legislators in Washington evidence minimal leadership with regard to pro-life/pro-family issues. Some of their sponsorships/co-sponsorships seem absolutely trivial (AT BEST!), when compared with pro-life/pro-family issues. For example,
- Casey is the lone sponsor of S.704: Rachel Carson Nature Trail Designation Act of 2013;
- Fitzpatrick is the lead sponsor of H.R.2856, the Captive Primate Safety Act.
- Toomey is the lead sponsor of S.AMDT.2707 to S.1926, To adjust phase-ins of flood insurance rate increases.
Please copy/paste the following into a message for Senator Casey, Senator Toomey, and Congressman Fitzpatrick (https://www.votervoice.net/NCHLA/Campaigns/30688/Respond):
Sign the petition, in support of Hobby Lobby:
"I support the right of Hobby Lobby and other companies, schools, and organizations to not be forced to comply with the HHS mandate.
"No company, school or organization should be forced to pay for birth control or abortion-causing drugs for their employees.
"Therefore, I urge the Supreme Court to declare the HHS mandate unconstitutional and protect Hobby Lobby's conscience rights and religious freedoms."
