Lindsey Mauldin, PPPA spokesperson.
We already know that the majority of people oppose restrictions on the right to abortion; poll after poll show it, and last night's results prove it. We do not need to put Pennsylvanians through the same, potentially traumatizing exercise here when we already know the eventual result.
Abortion is a right and not one we intend to lose. The extremists in the General Assembly will see that if they continue through the process of a similar anti-abortion amendment to our constitution.
We are fed up with these legislators invading our privacy and trying to control us. It is only when we can access health care that we have control over our lives, our bodies and our futures.
