Speaker Applauds House Vote to Protect Babies, Mothers
HARRISBURG – Speaker of the House Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) issued the following statement today in response to the Pennsylvania House advancing House Bill 1948 to the Senate for consideration. The bill would lower the risk to mothers and babies by limiting abortions to cases of medical necessity after 20 weeks of pregnancy, instead of the current 24-week ceiling, and ending the practice of dismemberment abortions.

“Moving House Bill 1948 to the Senate sends a clear signal that there is bipartisan support to protect unborn children and mothers and shows the Commonwealth’s commitment to promoting a culture of life,” said Turzai.

House Bill 1948 passed with a vote of 132-65.
