Speaker Turzai Applauds Passage of Pro-life Legislation
HARRISBURG – House Speaker Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) today applauded passage of Senate Bill 3, which lowers the risk to mothers and babies by limiting abortions to cases of medical necessity after 20 weeks of pregnancy and abolishing dismemberment abortions.

“We must protect the dignity of each and every life as best we can,” said Turzai. “The passage of this bill is evidence of bipartisan and bicameral support to protect unborn children and mothers and demonstrates the Commonwealth’s commitment to promoting a culture of life. The bill is both constitutional and reasonable.”

Turzai commended Rep. Kathy Rapp (R-Warren/Forest) for leading the effort to protect unborn children by advocating for Senate Bill 3, sponsored by Sen. Michele Brooks (R-Crawford/Erie/Mercer/Warren), which is substantially similar to House Bill 77 sponsored by Rapp. The Senate bill passed the Senate with a bipartisan vote of 32-18 and passed the House today by a bipartisan vote of 121-70.
