Status report on the pro-life cause in Pennsylvania? Healthy and strong!

Published on

The event was one of those occasions where the outcome was uncertain. The event was held on a sultry July night last week, and attendees hailed from across the region to hear me deliver a discourse on the subject of life.

I was gratified by the considerable number of attendees, including several individuals with whom I have been acquainted for an extended period. Furthermore, I formed connections with individuals who were previously unknown to me.

The attendees had convened to receive an update on the pro-life movement in Pennsylvania.

The Abortion Control Act, a time-tested law in the state of Pennsylvania, provides for informed consent, parental consent, a 24-hour waiting period for abortion, and protections for preborn babies past 24 weeks gestation. It is illegal in Pennsylvania for public funds to be used to pay for abortions, with the exception of cases of rape, incest, and where the life of the mother is at risk.

The Pennsylvania state Senate is currently controlled by a pro-life majority, while the state House of Representatives is held by a one-vote pro-abortion Democratic majority. The Governor of Pennsylvania, Josh Shapiro, is a regular user of social media, where he posts on the topic of abortion rights. He is in favour of legal abortion.

In essence, Pennsylvania is currently experiencing a period of divided government.

Consequently, it is imperative that efforts be made in Pennsylvania to ensure the continued implementation of the legal protections currently in place for preborn babies and their mothers. It is imperative that we intensify our efforts to provide support to pregnant women and their families, the elderly who are frail, and individuals with disabilities. It is imperative that we evolve our pro-life stance to ensure the protection of the rights of the most vulnerable among us.

The audience I addressed this week, the majority of whom were women, appeared prepared to engage with the subject matter. They are imbued with a fervour for life that could potentially ignite a transformative movement within their church, their community, and their Commonwealth.

I am continually motivated to advocate on behalf of those whose voices have been silenced by societal norms. It is evident that these women are prepared to utilise their voices in a collective act of solidarity with those who are most marginalised within society.

The pro-life movement in Pennsylvania is currently in a robust and resilient position.
