Lawmakers from across Pennsylvania joined at the state Capitol to stand in support of legislation that would strengthen Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act.
Specifically, Senate Bill 3 would completely ban the cruel and brutal practice of dismemberment abortions in the state of Pennsylvania.
In addition, it would enact a ban on abortions from the 20th week on during a pregnancy.
Taking a stance in support of this pro-life legislation was:
House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny)
“A life should not be something that you can just so quickly dispose.”
Rep. Kathy Rapp (R-Warren/Crawford/Forest)
“To the reasonable, common man, when you say dismemberment you instantly have an image in your mind of what dismemberment is. Every reasonable, common man does not need a poster because the image comes to our mind very vividly.”
Rep. Sid Michaels Kavulich (D-Lackawanna)
“We (my wife and I) experienced it in both adoption and birth. When it’s time to leave this earth, I can stand before God and say I was 100 percent pro-life.”
Rep. Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny/Washington)
“This is still a pro-life state. Pennsylvania is solidly pro-life. People should let lawmakers know they support Senate Bill 3.”
