Pennsylvania Legislature Approves Constitutional Amendment Barring Taxpayer Funding of Abortion

Pennsylvania's state Senate and House of Representatives passed a proposed amendment to the Pennsylvania constitution that would prohibit taxpayer funding of abortion.

If the proposed amendment passes the House and Senate again in the next legislative session, it will be placed on the ballot for voters.

“This Constitutional Amendment would represent a major win for all those who do not want their hard-earned tax dollars to pay for abortion, which is the taking of an innocent, unrepeatable human life,” said Maria Gallagher, legislative director of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, a National Right to Life affiliate.
