A Pennsylvania state representative is planning to introduce a bill that would threaten your tax dollars. Representative Steven Santarsiero (D-Bucks County) is circulating a co-sponsorship memo for a bill that would repeal Act 13 of 2013.
If you will recall, Act 13 is the common sense law that ensures that no taxpayer funding of abortion will occur in the health insurance exchange created in Pennsylvania under Obamacare. We must safeguard this important law!
Please call and email your state representative with this urgent message: “Please do not co-sponsor Rep. Santarsiero’s bill to repeal Act 13 of 2013. I don’t want my tax dollars to pay for abortion.” (The bill does not have a number yet.)
If you don’t know who your state representative is, or you need contact information, please go to www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/home/findyourlegislator/#address.
To view the co-sponsorship memo for this dangerous bill, go to www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/Legis/CSM/showMemoPublic.cfm?chamber=H&SPick=20150&cosponId=20267.
Thank you for making these critical calls and sending these important emails!
