Abortion has taken so many lives and harmed so many families in Pennsylvania.
This must change. Together, let’s change hearts and save lives in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act can be found in Title 18 Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, beginning with section 3201. (18 Pa.C.S. §3201, et seq.). Here is an outline of current restrictions:
No abortion shall be performed or induced without the informed consent of the woman which shall be given at least 24 hours after specific information has been provided to her to enable her informed consent. (18 Pa.C.S.§3205)
No abortion may be performed or induced except with the voluntary and informed consent of the woman. At least 24 hours prior to performing an abortion, the physician who is to perform the abortion must advise the woman of the probable gestational age of the unborn child, the nature and risks of the procedure, alternatives to the procedure and the medical risks associated with carrying her child to term. The physician must also offer to make written materials available to the woman and must inform the woman that Medical Assistance benefits for prenatal care and childbirth may be available to her and that the father of the child is liable to assist in support of the child. The pregnant woman must certify in writing that the information required to be provided to her has in fact been provided. (18 Pa. C.S.§3205)
A physician may not perform an abortion on a pregnant woman less than 18 years of age without the consent of the woman and at least one parent. There are exceptions to this requirement including a medical-emergency exception and in circumstances where a parent or guardian is not available. There is also a judicial-bypass exception that allows for the woman to petition a court to authorize an abortion where both parents refuse to consent to the abortion or the woman decides not to seek the consent of a parent. (18 Pa.C.S.§3206)
No abortion may be performed on an unborn child with a gestational age of 24 weeks or older except in cases of medical emergency where a physician certifies in writing that the abortion is necessary to prevent either the death or serious injury to the woman. (18 Pa.C.S.§3211)
The pro-life movement is at a watershed moment in America. The U.S. Supreme Court appears poised to cut back on or overturn Roe v. Wade with its ruling in the Dobbs case. Whether the Court overrules Roe completely or even chips away further at Roe, the decision is expected to shift this battle to the states. Each state will decide whether it will protect the dignity of life to the extent that it is permitted to do so or, on the other hand, maintain or even expand abortion. Activist judges in at least 12 states have already preempted future legislative efforts by declaring a right to abortion under their states’ constitutions and striking down certain state restrictions on abortion and abortion funding. In those states whose courts have already invented a right to abortion which does not rely on Roe and which is independent of the federal constitution, the outcome in Dobbs will have little impact.
In Pennsylvania, the abortion industry has not been successful getting its wishlist of taxpayer-funded elective abortions and no-limit abortions through the legislature. As such, it has turned to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court in a case called Allegheny Reproductive Health Center v. Pennsylvania Department of Human Services in hopes of inventing a right to abortion and forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions. Therefore, as we await the Dobbs decision from the U.S. Supreme Court, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court may be poised to create a right to abortion through its anticipated ruling in Allegheny Reproductive Health Center. If the PA Supreme Court agrees with the abortion industry, it will strike down Pennsylvania’s current law that prevents funding elective abortions with taxpayer money. Furthermore, if the Court finds an abortion right in the Pennsylvania Constitution, other abortion restrictions are in jeopardy, including the prohibition of abortion after 24 weeks, the 24-hour waiting period, informed consent provisions, safety regulations that protect women and other protections for the unborn.
Pregnancy Centers Are Pro-Life. The abortion industry claims to care about women, but women and babies die as a result of this dark industry. On the other hand, pregnancy resource centers offer an array of free, life-affirming services to women and families:
