“Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the LORD God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the LORD is finished.” I Chronicles 28:20
Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Pennsylvania is joining the statewide pro-life community for a Day of Action for Pennsylvania on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. We are asking everyone to contact their State Senator and urge them to vote “YES” to pass the Constitutional Life Amendment, SB956, before the state budget is passed this June.
CWA of Pennsylvania continues to strongly support the Pennsylvania Constitutional Life Amendment. SB956 is a joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Pennsylvania stating that there is no right to abortion or funding for an abortion. Current Pennsylvania law does not permit taxpayer funding for most abortions, and we want to keep it that way.
Supporting this bill protects the life of every unborn child from conception to birth, keeps our abortion laws from being struck down, will maintain our current laws, and allow our state to enact future pro-life laws to protect the health and life of women and their pre-born children.
Please email, tweet, or call your State Senator on Wednesday, June 1 and ask them to defend life and vote YES on SB956, the Life Amendment. Now is the time to act and make a difference!
A simple breakdown of the amendment process for SB956 is below my signature.
The Life Amendment currently awaits action by the full Pennsylvania Senate before moving to the State House. It is critical this bill pass in both chambers in June to follow state law and allow time to advertise the constitutional amendment ahead of next year’s new legislative session.
We cannot allow the abortion industry to force taxpayer funding of abortion and allow the Pennsylvania courts to change our abortion laws. We must pass the Life Amendment!
A win for the abortion industry in this lawsuit would:
- Force taxpayer funding of abortion.
- Jeopardize all current pro-life laws such as parental consent for minors, 24-hour waiting period before an abortion, and no regular inspection of abortion facilities.
- Manufacture a right to abortion in our state constitution by an activist court that sides with the abortion industry demands.
- Cause Pennsylvania to become one of the most extreme abortion states in our nation, legalizing abortion right up until birth
TAKE ACTION ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1! Please email, call, or tweet your State Senator through our Action Center HERE and urge them to pass the Life Amendment, SB956. Pennsylvania taxpayers should not be forced to pay for abortions!
Be sure to share this information with like-minded family and friends.
Please pray for your State Senator by name, asking for boldness, wisdom, and protection.
God bless you for your faithfulness in prayer and action.
From knees to feet,
Dilonna M. Coran
Life Amendment process:
The abortion industry will seek to accomplish its abortion agenda through the courts when it cannot move its agenda through legislation. There is a lawsuit before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that argues taxpayers should fund abortion and invents the right to an abortion in our Pennsylvania Constitution.
The Constitutional Life Amendment (SB 956) must be approved by both chambers, in identical form, in the 2022-2023 legislative session. If passed, it will go to the voters in a statewide ballot referendum in the fall of 2023. The beauty of a constitutional amendment is it takes the issue to the voters, does not need the Governor’s signature, and cannot be vetoed.
