Action Alert: Urge Your PA Rep. to Vote NO on Abortion Restriction HB2050

We need you to speak up to help stop another unconstitutional abortion ban.

HB2050 advanced through the House Health Committee yesterday, mostly along a party line vote. We expect a vote in the House as early as today.

HB2050 is the first attack on reproductive rights since Rep. Kathy Rapp was promoted to Chair of the House Health Committee. Rapp is so fixated on using her position to restrict reproductive rights rather than promote access to evidence-based healthcare for all Pennsylvanians that she trumpeted this effort as her first official action in her new role.

HB2050 does nothing to help people with disabilities or families taking care of a person with disability.

Read the perspective of a parent of a child with Down Syndrome who is opposed to this bill. Michael understands that every situation is different and that forcing women down a certain path does not make the world any better for individuals with Down Syndrome and their families.

Then call your Representative and urge them to oppose HB2050.

To learn more about this legislation, read letters of opposition from the National Women’s Law Center, Catholics for Choice, and the Center for Reproductive Rights.
