PHILADELPHIA—Responding to the PA Senate Republicans' efforts to ban abortion in the Commonwealth, PFT President Jerry Jordan issued the following statement:
"I am outraged and disgusted by the nefarious scheme that the PA Senate Republicans are carrying out in the State Capitol. While most of Pennsylvania was asleep last night, Senate Republicans unveiled a last ditch effort to ban abortion in the Commonwealth.
"It is a cruel form of irony to claim to protect ‘life’ while believing that this obligation begins and ends before the birth of a child.
"This maneuver is about power, control, and scoring political points at the expense of women's health. Shame on the Republicans who continue to lead with callous, power-hungry, stop-at-nothing cruelty.
"This union will always stand up for a woman's right to make the healthcare decisions she needs."
