Urgent Call to Action: Tell your State Representative to Vote NO on SB3

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives plans to vote on Senate Bill 3 as early as Monday, December 11.

SB3 has already passed the Senate.

It is urgent that you contact your state Representative and urge him or her to vote NO on SB3.

  • The AmericanCollege of Obstetricians and Gynecologists say Senate Bill 3 poses serious danger to pregnant patients
  • Legal experts including attorneys here at Women’s Law Project have assessed that SB3 is blatantly unconstitutional
  • Physicians who provide abortion care like Dr. Lisa Perriera says Senate Bill 3 would force “women to be incubators by not allowing them to make choices for their health”
  • Physician advocate groups like the Pennsylvania Medical Society says SB3 would set “a dangerous precedent by legislating specific treatment protocols”

Senate Bill 3 is dangerous and unconstitutional, which is why SB3’s supporters forced it through the legislative process by repeatedly voting against testimony from medical experts, doctors, and the public.

Kelsey Williams is a Pennsylvanian who bravely shares her story of terminating her pregnancy in the 21st week after receiving shocking news about serious fetal anomalies. Though SB3’s supporters refuse to listen to women, she shares her story to try to help families who may experience similarly devastating news, and wind up in the same unthinkable position.

Pennsylvania lawmakers supporting Senate Bill 3 refuse to listen to Kelsey, but we hope you will.

From Rewire:

“Since my abortion, I’ve had to listen to proponents of these bills like SB3 say that they know what’s best for babies and mothers, that they are the true voice for life. And that’s just flat out wrong,” she said. “I’m the only one in this world who ever held my son, carrying him in my womb for nearly six months. And I loved him enough to let him go so that he didn’t live only to know pain and suffering because life is about so much more than just a heartbeat.”
