Since 2014, legislators all over the country—including here in Pennsylvania—have embarked on a systematic campaign to weaken the protections in Roe and end abortion access throughout the United States. The No Right to Abortion Constiutional Amendment is the most extreme and dangerous attempt yet.
Before the 2022 summer recess, anti-abortion legislators switched course in their efforts to silence Pennsylvanians and strip them away of fundamental rights. In the evenings of July 7th and 8th, anti-abortion legislators amended the no anti-abortion constitutional amendment to include that there is no right to tax-payer funded abortion or any other right relating to abortion. This amendment would essentially pave the way for more abortion restrictions and bans in the state.
