Stop Pennsylvania's Mandatory Ultrasound Bill!

To be delivered to The Pennsylvania State House

Petition Statement

Stop the cruel, demeaning attacks on women - vote NO on HB 1077 and stop mandatory, invasive ultrasounds from becoming law in Pennsylvania!
There are currently 30,387 signatures. NEW goal - We need 40,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives is poised to pass HB 1077, the so-called "Women's Right to Know" Act. This bill operates under the guise that women aren't smart enough to understand their own bodies. It requires all women seeking an abortion to be subjected to a mandatory ultrasound at least 24 hours in advance. It requires the ultrasound screen to be aimed toward the woman's face but 'permits her to avert her eyes' and also requires that she deliver a print of the image to her physician in order to have the procedure. The PA Medical Society and other medical groups have already come out in opposition to this incredible invasion of the physician/patient relationship. Your Representative can stop this demeaning and unnecessary attack by voting NO on HB 1077, but we need your help!
