New Site on PA Women's Health Legislation

There are two bills moving through the state legislature that will dramatically limit the access Pennsylvania women have to reproductive health.  A new website, We've Had Enough, provides fact sheets for the two bills.

SB 732 would force free-standing abortion providers to be regulated as Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (ASF) which require burdensome and unnecessary structural and staffing changes.   

SB 3 would ban insurance companies participating in the yet-to-be established state health insurance exchange from offering abortion coverage. 

There will be a rally in Harrisburg on Tuesday, Sept. 27th, at 11:30.

The website points out that in the first six months of 2011, Pennsylvania lawmakers spent 30% of their days at the Capitol working to restrict access to safe, legal abortion.
