Yes on HB2050: Protect Unborn Children Diagnosed with Down syndrome

Use the form below to contact your State Senator and State Representative.

Children and individuals with Down syndrome are valued members of their families and communities, and make meaningful contributions to Pennsylvania every day. Yet the vast majority of women who are given a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome elect to have an abortion. In countries like Iceland, these babies are aborted nearly 100% of the time.

Protect Unborn Children Diagnosed with Down SyndromeUnder current Pennsylvania law, a woman can obtain an abortion up to six months in pregnancy for any reason, with only one exception - if the woman’s sole reason is to select the sex of the child. Shouldn’t there be more exceptions?

If “Pennsylvanians with a disability are valued members of society” (Governor Tom Wolf), then Pennsylvania should be a place where every individual - including those with Down syndrome - is protected, respected and valued.

New legislation has been introduced (in the State House, it is House Bill 2050) and your State Senator and State Representative have the opportunity to co-sponsor this legislation that would stop any child from being aborted solely due to a diagnosis of possible Down syndrome.

Please use the form below to email your State Senator and State Representative and ask for their co-sponsorship of this legislation.
