(Harrisburg, Pa.) Seven female members of the Pennsylvania Senate Democratic Caucus circulated a memo on Friday afternoon to take steps to codify into state law the personal right to make decisions about health and reproduction, including access to safe and legal abortions.
The co-sponsorship memo was circulated by state Senators Katie Muth, Amanda Cappelletti, Lindsey Williams, Maria Collett, Judy Schwank, Christine Tartaglione, and Carolyn Comitta.
The legislation comes on the heels of what the Senators call a devastating ruling handed down by what they are calling a partisan Supreme Court last Friday that overturned the 1973 Roe v Wade ruling and eliminates the constitutional right to an abortion after almost 50 years and lets states make their own decisions on abortion laws
