Let’s meet

Lisa Baker

State Senator,
Pennsylvania Senate District 20

Republican

After a consistently anti-choice legislative record, Lisa appears to have changed course (inconsistently) in recent years. Her support of the current Abortion Control Act earns her an "Anti-Choice-Ish" label.

The mixed signals:

Lisa voted against a bill that prohibits abortions because of the prenatal diagnosis of down syndrome.

Review Bill

Lisa sponsored a bill to prohibit almost all abortion coverage under health insurance plans purchased in PA’s ACA exchange.

Review Bill

Take action

Tell Lisa how important it is that we codify the right to an abortion:

This legislator seems to believe that abortion rights are fine as-is, even after the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

What to say:

Call your legislator and push them to vote to protect abortion rights. They may be open to switching positions if they hear enough from their constituents.

  • Introduce yourself, including your relation to the district.
  • Emphasize your role in the local community.
  • Explain why it is important to you that the right to abortion be protected. Personal stories can help.
  • Ask if they will commit to voting for any legislation that will protect the right to an abortion.
  • If they say no, ask if they will commit to voting against any legislation that will further limit access to abortion.
