State Issues (4/1/17 update)

As per the Pa Catholic Conference,

In addition, as per the Pa Pro Life Federation,
  • Let your state Senator know you don't want your right to vote for judges to be taken away (2/16/17)
  • Oppose HB 111 (3/6/17
  • "House Bill 643, sponsored by state Rep. Matthew Baker (R-Bradford, Potter, Tioga Counties), would ensure that there are no time limits for prosecuting infanticide. The measure would also expand the window of opportunity for prosecuting illegal late-term abortions to five years after the alleged crimes occurred.  The legislation stems from recommendations made by the grand jury in abortionist Kermit Gosnell's 'House of Horrors' case....House Bill 643 is one additional legislative effort to ensure that the horrors of Gosnell are not repeated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania" (3/13/17)

In addition, as per the Pro Life Coalition of Pennsylvania, 
  • "Some progress has occurred in our attempts to persuade the Pa. House of Representatives leaders to pass S.B.3 rather than their own bill, H.B.77.  Please urge Pa. House Speaker Mike Turzai and Majority Leader Dave Reed to run S.B.3 as soon as possible.  Their contact information is
