Let’s meet

David Rowe

State Representative,
Pennsylvania House District 85

Republican

The proof:

David sponsored a bill that would require “pain relief medication” be delivered to a fetus for an abortion, despite increased risk to the patient and no scientific evidence of fetal pain.

Review Bill

Take action

Tell David they do not represent you:

This legislator is dangerous. Their position on abortion is completely out of touch: advocating for some of the most extreme abortion bans being considered right now.

What to say:

Call your legislator and make it clear that they are going too far. Try to urge them to walk away from their most extreme positions.

  • Introduce yourself, including your relation to the district.
  • Emphasize your role in the local community.
  • Explain why you do not agree with their position. Personal stories that exemplify the problems these bans would create are helpful.
  • Ask if they will protect the right to an abortion in such cases.
  • If they say no, ask them how they plan to fund more public childcare and maternal healthcare.
