Pennsylvania needs fetal heartbeat law

I would like to commend state senators Judy Ward and Doug Matriano along with state representative Stephanie Borowicz for their well written piece titled, “Time to follow science, protect life.”

An unborn child’s heart begins to beat within the first month of life. Everyone knows that and yet, Pennsylvania law still permits abortion up to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

By listening to the science and supporting the passing of Senate Bill 378 and House Bill 904, we could ensure many more of our smallest citizens could actually enjoy their right to life.
