In Pennsylvania's

Some of the Bucks County delegation appear to be treating their pro life consituents like fools....

You can click here to Email all of Bucks County's representatives and senators in Harrisburg on pro life and pro marriage/family legislation being championed by the Pa Catholic Conference, including HB 1948.  As explained by Mike McMonagle of the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania:

"After 27 years of no efforts to ban, or even regulate, abortions in Pa., this bill [H.B. 1948] requires our state legislators to take a public position on legislation to ban some abortions and generate a public debate on certain aspects of the 'abortion issue.'  The pro-life movement in Pa. can greatly benefit from this bill being debated and voted on in the Pa. House and Senate....

"The Pa. House Health Committee passed H.B.1948 on April 4, 2016 on a 16-10 vote after defeating an amendment to kill the bill by delaying action for public hearings on a 10-10 vote.  On April 6, 2016, the full Pa. House defeated this same amendment on a 114-73 vote.  Please visit www.house.state.pa.us to learn how your Pa. House member voted.

"Please note that some legislators who claim to be pro-life voted for this pro-abortion amendment and 15 legislators, most of whom claim to be pro-life, refused to vote on this amendment.

"The full Pa. House could hold a final passage vote as early as April 11, 2016.  So, please contact your Pa. House member as soon as possible and urge him or her to vote for the final passage of H.B.1948.

"The Pa. Senate leadership has promised prompt action on H.B.1948.  So, please also contact your State Senator and urge him or her to support this legislation and oppose any delaying or weakening amendments."
On April 6th, only Rep Craig Staats and Rep Kathy Watson cast pro life votes from Bucks County.  Some of the Bucks County delegation appear to be treating their pro life consituents like fools....
