Passage in the Senate Judiciary Committee means it just needs a final passage in the State Senate before it reaches Governor Wolf’s desk. Yes, the former Planned Parenthood escort will probably veto the bill, BUT the legislature needs to send him a message that we want to protect babies in the womb who are diagnosed with Down Syndrome. The bill passed in the House with a veto-proof majority, we can pray the same thing happens in the Senate, then Wolf’s anticipated veto can be overturned.
Contact your State Senator and ask him or her to vote ‘Yes’ on HB 2050.
