Representative Metcalfe held a press conference to introduce the Whole Woman’s Health Funding Priorities Act.
Life begins at conception and it is our government’s Constitutional duty to protect the rights of the born and unborn alike. Life is sacred and we must protect those who cannot protect themselves.
During the current legislative session, I introduced the “Whole Woman’s Health Funding Priorities Act.” This legislation will ensure that taxpayer money goes to facilities that provide comprehensive women’s health care services, not to abortion-on-demand providers including Planned Parenthood.
I am a co-sponsor of the “Women’s Right-to-Know Act”, which would provide for ultrasound test requirements and expand on the informed consent condition currently in Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act.
I have also called upon Governor Corbett to end the taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. A copy of my letter can be viewed here.
“Pro-life, pro-choice, undecided or indifferent, the majority of Pennsylvania taxpayers do not support their tax dollars being used to further the practice of abortion on demand,” said Representative Metcalfe.
“If we as a society are to succeed in encouraging more women and couples to make the compassionate choice of offering the gift of life, we must stop funding Planned Parenthood with taxpayer dollars, ” said Representative Metcalfe.
