Commission for Women Urges House to Vote Against Senate Bill 3

first_img Healthcare,  Press Release,  Public Health,  Women’s Rights If passed, Pennsylvania will have one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the U.S.Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Commission for Women (PCW) Chair Randi Teplitz, on behalf of the commission, today issued a statement urging the General Assembly to vote down a restrictive abortion ban. Senate Bill 3 passed the state House Health Committee Monday evening.“As our commonwealth faces many challenges, it is disheartening to see that our Pennsylvania General Assembly — which is comprised 80 percent of males — has chosen to focus its efforts on passing one of the most restrictive, and likely unconstitutional, anti-choice laws in the nation,” Teplitz said.“This bill moved out of committee without transparency — there were no public hearings conducted on its merits. The Pennsylvania Commission for Women believes that any changes to abortion laws that impact women to this degree should not occur without a robust discussion that includes input from the health care community as well as the public, particularly Pennsylvania women.”Senate Bill 3 would ban abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy, and does not allow for exceptions in cases of rape, incest, or extreme fetal abnormalities. Governor Tom Wolf this week announced that if the bill makes it to his desk, he will veto it.
