Thank Judith for her support:

This legislator has consistently shown that they will protect abortion rights.

Thank them for their consistency. Your support will encourage them to continue to vote this way, and may give them the confidence to become a stronger advocate of pro-choice legislation.

“What's happening in Texas is exactly what we must never allow to happen in Pennsylvania. It's cruel and inhumane. Abortion is legal in Pennsylvania and must be protected. No judge or elected official has the right to dictate health care decisions.”

“Following the overturning of #RoeVsWade on this day one year ago, state legislatures across the country raced to ban abortion. While abortion remains safe and legal in PA, we must recommit ourselves to protecting providers, removing barriers and expanding access to care.”

“In the middle of the night, a federal appeals court preserved access to mifepristone but imposed a 7-week restriction on the drug down from 10 weeks. This ruling upholds totally arbitrary restrictions on the most common abortion method in the U.S.”

“Yesterday would have been the 50th anniversary of #RoeVWade. Without Roe, state legislatures have become more important than ever. Abortion remains protected in PA, but we can't get complacent. We must continue to protect reproductive freedom.”

“This is just one small setback. As I've said before, #SB106 is just the beginning of what will be a persistent effort to roll back access to abortion in PA. Defeating this constitutional amendment is the first of many post-Roe fights to come.”
